Jaguar fans can start counting down the months to a massive, right royal event being planned for owners next spring.

How massive? Officials say that it will be among the biggest Jaguar gatherings ever to have been staged, anywhere.

The Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club (JEC) spectacular occasion will be a celebration of more than eight decades of the classic marque with 1,000 models expected.

Specific details of next May’s Royal Windsor Jaguar Festival charity event are largely hush-hush at the moment.Jaguar XK150

What we do know, however, is that the festival will be split into two parts:

• The day before: Windsor Castle’s stately St George’s Hall will host a special champagne reception for 400 guests who will gather to discuss fundraising and all things Jag.

• The day itself: As many as 250 Jags from down the ages will participate in a colourful parade from Windsor town centre to Frogmore Cricket Club, via Windsor Castle‘s famous Quadrangle. An additional 750 Jags will join the stunning line-up on The Long Walk. The brand’s amazing diversity will rarely have been better showcased.

What the JEC officials say

They are “thrilled” by the prospect of the May 2017 event, calling it “momentous” and “an extravaganza”.

Unprecedented numbers are anticipated at Windsor, the club says. Few other shows have ever showcased so many SS and Daimler cars.

The chosen charity is The Prince Philip Trust, which the club describes as a superb generator of educational and social welfare support.
