Friday 28 February 2020, 1pm for 1.30pm start
This very special walking tour, organised just for DVS members, will be led by Art Ramirez, Datchet resident and Deputy Secretary to the Guild of Voluntary Stewards, who started as a volunteer Steward in St George’s Chapel 35 years ago. He is currently in charge of the introductory historical training and Health and Safety aspects of volunteering in St George’s Chapel. Art is also a warden in the Castle, working for the Royal Collection Trust for the past 15 years, regularly conducting tours of the Castle precinct, The Round Tower, Frogmore House and private tours of the State Rooms. Working for the Royal Collection Trust has meant also working in London at the Royal Mews, Queens Gallery and the summer opening of Buckingham Palace.
WHEN: Friday 28 February 2020. We have been asked to arrive at Windsor Castle Admission Centre no later than 1pm. Our tour will begin at 1.30pm sharp from the bandstand in the Jubilee Gardens within the Castle grounds. Please note, this is a walking tour so you need to be actively mobile. We aim to finish around 3.30pm giving us time to visit the Cloister Shop and we are welcome to return for Evensong from 5.15pm to 6pm.
