About The Pageant
2019 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria and to celebrate this significant occasion, The Pageant will be staged by the BAFTA award-winning team on the evenings of 9th, 10th and 11th May at Royal Windsor Horse Show.
The 90-minute show will bring together memorable events and aspects from the Victorian era. This will include everything from Elgar, the music hall and Gilbert & Sullivan to author Charles Dickens, rail travel and the Industrial Revolution.
A cast of artists, dancers and performers, together with 500 participants, more than 400 horses and 30 carriages will re-create 19th century Great Britain and the reign of Queen Victoria in a theatrical performance in the shadow of the floodlit Windsor Castle.
Alongside The Household Cavalry and The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery will be the Czikos from Hungary, the acrobatic and daring Land of Fire Display from Azerbaijan, Pipes & Drums, dancers from the music halls, performers from Gilbert & Sullivan operas and a Balmoral Dressage Quadrille. Further details of the acts will be announced closer to the time.
This event joins the Pageant Series at Royal Windsor Horse Show, which over the years has included All The Queen’s Horses (2002), Windsor Castle Royal Tattoo (2008 to 2011), The Diamond Jubilee Pageant (2012) and The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration (2016).
