The Royal Windsor Jaguar Festival is set to be one of the biggest and best yet as the event organizers aim to attract one of the largest single gatherings of Jaguars, SS cars and Daimlers ever, in the Spring of 2017.

The event will include a stunning parade of up to 250 Jaguars from both past and present through Windsor Town Centre and into The Quadrangle of Windsor Castle before going on display at the Frogmore Cricket Club for the public to enjoy. However, the excitement does not end there as a further 750 Jaguars are expected to line The Long Walk giving the public a chance to admire models covering over 80 years of Jaguar’s rich heritage.

 Chris Aitken, Secretary and Trustee of The Prince Philip Trust Fund said:   ‘The event  is being held in furtherance of the objects  of The Prince Philip Trust Fund for The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to improve conditions of  life in the local community, by enabling the provision of facilities for leisure time occupation, developing  public appreciation of the arts, literature and science and  advancing the education of  young people’.

Tim Hannig, Director, Jaguar Land Rover Classic, said: ‘We are proud to support the Royal Windsor Jaguar Festival. Seeing close-on 1,000 Jaguars in one place will be a rare opportunity for the public to witness such a diverse collection of privately owned models.’

Peter Purdom, Chairman, Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club, said: ’The Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club boasts 16,000 members making it the World’s largest Jaguar club. On the Friday eve of the Festival, the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club will welcome 400 guests to a Champagne Reception. On the Saturday, we look forward to treating the public to the parade of up to 250 Jaguar cars through the Town Centre and the chance to view an amazing display of Jaguar cars, which will all be arranged in chronological order, and will give people a fantastic insight into Jaguar’s enviable history.’
