Celebrate royal weddings past and present with this musical extravaganza in the Moat Garden. Windsor Castle has been a beautiful backdrop for royal weddings over many centuries. Take part in special wedding-themed storytelling sessions, picnic beneath the Round Tower and listen to live music throughout the day.

Storytelling sessions will be delivered by Olivia Armstrong, as well as a special guest storyteller from Shakespeare's Globe.

The day's festivities will also include Bach to Baby concerts, the opportunity to meet serving soldiers from the Household Cavalry and an art workshop where you can create your own wedding bouquet or buttonhole.

Oberon and Titania, King and Queen of the fairies, are not getting along and the whole forest is in a frenzy. Caught in the middle are four runaway lovers, a group of amateur actors and Oberon’s not-so-trusty helper, Puck!

With magic and mischief round every turn (including more than one love potion, and a very silly donkey), join us for a true Shakespearean comedy guaranteed to make you laugh out loud.
