Bach to Baby and Shakespeare's Globe come to Windsor Castle for a celebration of The Merry Wives of Windsor.

Thursday 30 May 11.00am and 1.00pm

The Merry Wives of Windsor

Featuring David Jones, baritone & Jean Kelly, harp

Relax in the Castle grounds and listen to a Bach to Baby classical concert, especially for our smallest visitors. There are songs to be sung and strings to be strummed - David will serenade you with a composition by Prince Albert, and Jean will foil foolish Falstaff with music of the fairies!

Then hear the joyously silly tale of Sir John Falstaff and the ladies of Windsor. Told with energy and flair by a storyteller from Shakespeare's Globe, this debut performance is not to be missed.

Entry is free with a standard entry ticket to the Castle.

About the venue

Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world and offers an extraordinarily rich and varied day out for all the family. Take time to explore the State Apartments, marvel at King Henry VIIIs enormous suit of armour made nearly 500 years ago, and discover the battlements, towers, arrow loops and murder holes that can all be found around the Castle Precincts. Throughout its history, Windsor Castle has been redecorated, enlarged and rebuilt. Today, The Queen spends most of her private weekends at the Castle, which is also used regularly for ceremonial and State occasions.

Bach to Baby is thrilled to bring our family concerts to such a remarkable and historic setting.
