A FREE performance at a new bandstand in Windsor's Alexandra Gardens takes place this Sunday. 

Bring a picnic, chairs or a blanket and get ready to relax in the park's lovely surroundings as The Band of the Rifles entertain.

Starting at 2pm on September 18, the traditional afternoon festival forms the opening of the annual Windsor Festival which runs until October 2. 

The bandstand performance marks the Queen's 60 years on the throne and as head of the armed forces.

Entry is free, and the performance lasts two hours.
