THANK YOU WINDSOR: A SELECTION OF SKETCHES    |     The Old Court, St Leonard's Road

Tickets - Free event

Twelve years ago, Massimiliano Muratori visited Windsor during a holiday and fell in love with the town, its historic buildings and surrounding area. Deciding to move here he began work at the Royal Windsor Information Centre and in his spare time taught himself to sketch.

Often seen around the town perched on a tiny chair with his sketchpad and trademark long peak cap, Massi has sketched buildings, streets, clocks, towers, Windsor Castle – anything that takes his eye. And always completed there and then, never added to or retouched later, his pictures are quite unique.

Artist: Massimiliano Muratori

Times:
Monday to Thursday 10am – 11pm
Friday and Saturday 10am – midnight
Sunday 10am – 10.30pm

 

Saturday 25th September

Summer of 1969:  Woodstock becomes the defining moment of the counter-culture movement. And Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Mahalia Jackson and BB King play to a combined crowd of more than 300,000 people at The Harlem Cultural Festival. 

The later has been all but forgotten. Until now.

Plague, Pestilence & Potions Walk   |    2pm - The Guildhall

Tickets - Eventbright: Walk

Explore Windsor’s infectious disease history with award winning Blue Badge tourist guide Amanda Bryett from Windsor Tourist Guides Ltd.

From Elizabeth I during the plague to Elizabeth II during COVID,  Windsor has always been a refuge for monarchs during disease outbreaks, see the site where Elizabeth I positioned a new set of gallows constructed during a plague outbreak in 1563.  When she said lockdown, she really meant lockdown!

We will see the building where Windsor’s first dispensary (consulting surgery) for the sick poor of the town opened in 1819 and was a vaccination hub during a smallpox outbreak in 1827.

Find out why Eton schoolboys were made to smoke during a plague outbreak in the 1600s and how certain ‘businesses’ in the town took advantage of the myth that you couldn’t catch two diseases at the same time.  Fake news is nothing new!

All you ever needed to know about Windsor’s disease past including the Black Death, smallpox, typhoid, cholera and influenza.

  • Start point: Windsor Guildhall
  • Start time: 2pm
  • Length of tour: 90 minutes
  • Maximum group size: 15
