50th Anniversary Festival 2019

Thank you to all audience, performers, members and everyone involved who made the 50th Anniversary of Windsor Festival such a wonderful celebration.

Windsor Festival 2020

After due consideration of the current situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic and the likelihood of social distancing measures being in place throughout the autumn the Trustees have decided that it is not going to be possible to hold Windsor Festival 2020 in the way in which we would all like. The Trustees remain unanimous in their aim to keep the Festival vibrant and alive, such that when we return to live events we will be in good shape, having ensured as best a financial position as possible.
Consideration of performers and audience, with the likely restrictions in place and the safety of all those involved, has led the Trustees to agree that we will not be holding live events this autumn.

This news is clearly of much disappointment to everyone involved in the Festival: members, audience, performers, supporters and sponsors, and organisers.

We will be working to develop more digital presence, and to involve you, and are looking at the possibilities of holding virtual events. We will keep you updated as this works develops.

In the meantime the Festival sends very best wishes to you all, and hopes that you are keeping well in these extraordinary times.
