What's On in Windsor

I live near the very old town of Windsor.  It's a hard place to place what with the oldest living continually inhabited castle sitting up on the with its powerful tower announcing its presence with authority.  No matter where you turn you can't miss it.  It is a constant reminder of the links between Queen and Country.
If you are a visitor to the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, this should be your first port of call.  If you live in and around Windsor and haven't taken the tour of the castle, you really have no excuse.  Get yourself over there.  The original paintings of past Kings, Queens and other aristocracy which featured in our history books grace the walls.  The tapestries, rugs and furnishings are exquisite.  Don't forget to walk around St George's Chapel where King Henry VIII and Jane Seymour are buried right in the centre of the quire.
But once you leave the grounds of Windsor Castle many visitors to our historic town can be baffled for ideas about what to do next.  Ours is a sleepy and hidden place.  You will find that all the shops close by 6:00 pm and other than having a meal out at any one of our fantastic restaurants or pubs, you may find it difficult to find any entertainment.  On cold, dark winter nights, our town looks like we are all curled up in bed in our nightdresses.  Unless, of course, you want to get caught up in the drunken mayhem on Thames Street after 11 pm on a Friday or Saturday night.  If you are looking for a bit more or something a bit different, you may find yourself lost.
Do not fear, however, is here to help.
Whether you are just in Windsor overnight or planning a long weekend to our fair town, Glow Events has collected all the in one place so you can find all the hidden cultural treasures.  Whether you are looking for live music, opera, poetry and/or book readings, art installations, comedy, or dramatic performances, this town has got something for everyone on just about any night of the week.
