To mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria, a 90-minute show will be taking place as part of the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Staged by a BAFTA award-winning team, The Pageant will bring together some of the most exciting and memorable event of the golden age, such as Charles Dickens, the Industrial Revolution, rail travel and Gilbert & Sullivan. It’s set to be quite the show, with a cast of artists, dancers and performers alongside more than 500 participants, 400 horses and 30 carriages, working together to re-create 19th century Great Britain. Expect music from the period, poems from Tennyson, readings from Queen Victoria’s diaries equestrian action, snippets from renowned literature and theatre and much more.
“When you reflect on the Victorian Era, you realise that there is so much to work with,” said producer, Simon Brooks-Ward. “We have picked some of the best bits to give our audience a real experience of the 19th century and a much loved Monarch.”
The show joins Royal Windsor Horse Show’s Pageant Series, which has seen the likes of The Diamond Jubilee Pageant (2012) and Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebrations (2016). The Pageant is a not-for-profit event, and will be supporting a number of charities such as The Queens’ Commonwealth Trust.
