Queen's 90th birthday preview show cancelled

The heavy rain and mud has led to tonight's show being cancelled

A preview performance of the Royal Windsor Horse Show has been cancelled. The event is part of the celebrations planned by the organisers of Her Majesty the Queen's 90th Birthday Celebrations in Windsor.

The organisers have said that the show in front of a live audience can not take place because of heavy rain. There will be no impact on performances for the rest of the week, but the organisers said that unfortunately they can not offer replacement tickets to anyone who was planning to attend tonight's show because all the other performances are sold out.

Nick Brooks-Ward, Director of Operations for the Royal Windsor Horse Show explains the situation below.
