THE VICTORIAN PAGEANT 2019
A Monarch whose Reign saw over six decades of innovation and prosperity, Queen Victoria ensured this era was marked by endeavour and expansion.
The horse was at the centre of everything in Great Britain and Ireland. At the start of Queen Victoria’s Reign, it was horses that pulled the carriages through the streets, the ploughs through the fields, and the carts down the mines to bring up the coal that fuelled the Industrial Revolution. Elsewhere, riding was a pleasure, a pastime that saw horses race on the turf of Newmarket, ride out across the countryside of Britain, and carry their riders up and down Rotten Row in Hyde Park – Victorian London’s place to be seen.
Around the world, horses were a huge part of everyday life. From the cowboys to cavalry, horses carried the men and women of the world through the 19th century as wars were won and lost, empires established and overthrown, and new countries grew out of the ashes of old.
Queen Victoria’s Reign was a golden time for arts and culture, with music taking to the fore. Music Halls springing up all over London brought entertainment to the masses, with stars of the stage performing songs, plays, operas and even cabaret to audiences of all classes. In London the Great Exhibition at Crystal Palace showcased artefacts from the world over, Gilbert and Sullivan composed their famous operas, and Charles Dickens penned the novels that would immortalise him in literature.
Of course, it was not an age without conflict. Depicted in Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s The Charge of the Light Brigade, Balaclava proved the most notorious encounter in the Crimean War. The Mounted Units of the Household Calvary and the King’s Troop, Royal Horse Artillery, represent their forebears from this infamous war.
Celebrating the golden age of innovation and exploration, The Pageant is an equestrian and musical Tribute to the accomplishments of the Victorian age.
Tune in to watch The Pageant, streamed on the evening of Saturday 16th May!
