Virtual Festival


Welcome to Virtual Windsor Festival 2020 20 September to 4 October.

The Festival is looking to bring people together during the time when we would have all been attending performances as we have so often done in the past, and look forward to doing again in the future.

In the absence of live events we are pleased to be bringing a number of events to you via our website at the time of the Festival. All events can be watched free of charge, except where there is a book included, but we would encourage you to consider donating towards the costs of the Virtual Festival and to the on-going prosperity of the Festival. You can do so by clicking the Donate Now button on each event page.

We will be streaming events at specific times, and you will be able to comment, and share these experiences with others.

We do hope that you will join us.

In the meantime, we would like to share with you the video of a project undertaken by the Chapel Choirs of Eton College.

With best wishes

Martin Denny

Festival Director
