Wind­sor Fes­ti­val’s au­tumn pro­gramme in the se­cond half of Septem­ber – along­side the Wind­sor Fringe – pro­vides a feast of mu­sic, art, books, talks, fam­ily events and walks.

With venues in­clud­ing Wind­sor Cas­tle and Eton Col­lege, the fes­ti­val has the per­fect stage to show­case its of­fer­ings, but the stan­dard of per­form­ers and speak­ers is so high that such iconic back­drops must per­haps ac­cept se­cond billing.

Two ma­jor themes are re­flected in the pro­gramme – the cen­te­nary of the end of the First World War and Women’s Suf­frage. So you can hear Shami Chakrabarti talk about her book ‘Of Women: In the 21st Cen­tury’ or join Jenni Mur­ray with ‘A His­tory of the World in 21 Women’. You could view how The Fallen are com­mem­o­rated through Eton’s Great

War Re­mem­brance trail and at­tend out­stand­ing con­certs. The open houses and stu­dios of artists are al­ways a big draw and The Fringe in­cludes com­edy at Wind­sor & Eton Brew­ery – where you can also en­joy ‘Shakes­beer in Love’ on 21 and 22 Septem­ber.
