Diamond Jubilee Windsor Pageant
In June 2012, visitors to Windsor Castle will be taken on a ‘journey around the world’ – a series of equestrian events, starring over 500 horses and 800 performers from around the globe.
The occasion named, ‘The World Comes to Windsor Pageant’ will be held in the grounds of Windsor Castle over a three day period.
The final performance of the Diamond Jubilee pageant will be attended by the Queen herself.
Tha pageant has already been nearly 2 years in the planning. Director and producer of the event, Simon Brookes Ward says, "The Queen has been on over 250 state visits on her 60-year reign. And we’re keen for people to understand, enjoy and celebrate that the Queen has done so much for this country and for the international community."
"Bursting With Pride"
The opening of the Diamond Jubilee pageant will include displays from the Mounted Band of the Household Cavalry Regiment and the King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery.
The show will then whisk spectators around the world with performances from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Mexican singers and dancers, Cook Island dancers, New South Wales Mounted Police and Aborigines, Dhol drummers and dancers and the Omani Mounted Activity Ride.
The arena will be transformed with a set including images of Buckingham Castle.
Event ambassador, Alan Titchmarsh said the occasion would be "bursting with pride, not just for the British nation but for all those nations that have been invited to participate in it".
