THIS year's Windsor Festival will mark two two significant centenaries - the end of the First World War and the arrival of women’s suffrage.

Shami Chakrabarti - Baroness Chakrabarti - the barrister and former director of Liberty, will talk about her Book Of Women in the 21st Century, while Professor June Purvis will talk about about the life of suffragette Christabel Pankhurst and Woman's Hour presenter Jenni Murray will run through A History of the World in 21 Women.

The First World War will be remembered through music and visual art. Eton College’s Great War Remembrance trail will offer a chance to view the ways in which its fallen are commemorated, Orpheus Sinfonia and Baritone Roderick Williams will present a concert programme which includes music composed during the war, while The Choir of St George’s Chapel’s For the Fallen offers music with associations to the Chapel.

Artist Hughie O’Donoghue will speak about his series of paintings Seven Halts on the Somme.

But there is also so much more in the festival programme: a visit from the Choir of Westminster Cathedral to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of St Edward’s Catholic Church, a performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and plenty more.

You can get a brochure on line or at the Old Court in St Leonard's Road. where the festival launches this Sunday.
