cannon on the long walk

21st April will be a noisy day in Windsor again this year. To celebrate Her Majesty’s birthday we like to make a bit of noise. Chris Brown the official Town Crier will be ringing his bell during the morning, inviting everyone to join the Mayor on the Long Walk at noon for the traditional 21 gun salute. The firing of the cannons is one of most beloved Windsor traditions and everyone is welcome to attend this highly entertaining free spectacle.

The Town Crier has confirm that a verse or two of ‘Happy Birthday’ to the Queen will be sung by the crowd and anybody not singing loudly enough might end up in the dungeon!

Its earplug time again!
