The Queen is set to celebrate her 90th birthday in monumental style with four nights of festivities at Windsor Castle. Some 25,000 tickets went on sale on Tuesday for the celebrations, which are set to feature 900 horses and 1,500 performers.
Buckingham Palace has announced that the birthday celebrations, hosted in Windsor's Home Park, will involve performances from dancers, musicians and choirs, along with well-known artists and actors.
Members of the royal family will attend each night of celebrations from 12-15 May, with the Queen confirmed to attend the final show, which will be broadcast live on ITV.
Tickets to the celebrations cost between £55 and £165 on the first three nights, and rise to between £75 and £195 on the final night. Meanwhile a free ballot for tickets to a pre-show party on The Long Walk, which leads through the park to Windsor Castle, will open early next year. Another 5,000 free tickets will be made available to watch the final show on a giant screen in Windsor.
