Castle Trek – day 1 – Windsor Castle to Bletchley

Support the Regiment’s Castle Trek team as they undertake a 446 mile walk from Windsor Castle to Edinburgh Castle over 10 days to raise funds for the Household Cavalry Foundation and the Royal British Legion.

To add to this hugely physically and mentally draining challenge, the team are adding some public entertainment to the mix and Martin Semple will be performing his solo show Stand Up Soldier each and every evening!

Drum Horse in the Fountain – book signing – Evesham Festival of Words

From politicians to Archbishops and even Oscar winners, meet some of the most fascinating and eccentric men ever to have been let loose on the public.

The DRUM HORSE in the FOUNTAIN & Other Tales of Heroes & Rogues in the Guards By Christopher Joll and Anthony Weldon – talk and book signing, Wednesday 17 April.

The public perception of the Guards is of soldiers used for ceremonial duties and State pageantry and officered, in the words of Lord Mandelson, by “chinless wonders”. But, The Drum Horse in the Fountain demonstrates how far from the mark is this image.

Christopher Joll and Anthony Weldon have captured the careers, accomplishments, follies and the occasional crimes of over three hundred of the officers and men, many of whom have been forgotten or overlooked, who, since King Charles II, have served in the seven Regiments (two Household Cavalry and five Foot Guards) of the sovereign’s personal troops.

Christopher Joll, a former officer in The Life Guards, is now an author and event director, and Anthony Weldon is a former Irish Guards officer turned author and publisher. The two of them have combined forces to produce a riveting account of characters who served in the Household Cavalry and the Foot Guards since 1660, drawing on their extensive experience of both arms of the Sovereign’s Household troops.

Join Christopher Joll for a talk and book signing on Wednesday 17th April at Evesham Festival of Words.
