ABBA Party Night At Windsor Castle !


Ma'am-a-Mia! Queen allows 500 staff and guests to party at Windsor Castle with music played by an ABBA tribute band

 

  •  Staff and guests danced the night away at Windsor Castle to the sounds of ABBA
  • Fans dressed to match the band's era and sipped champagne for £12.50 a ticket
  • The Windsor Castle Cinema Club was recently set up for Royal Staff and guests

Her favourite song is said to be Dancing Queen – so when Her Majesty allowed 500 staff and guests to dance the night away at Windsor Castle, it’s no surprise the music was provided by an Abba tribute band.


And when it got dark, the blockbuster film Mamma Mia! which features Abba’s hits, blasted out from a giant screen.
Fans dressed in fashions from the Abba era sipped champagne and boogied the night away as guests of the Windsor Castle Cinema Club, paying £12.50 for a ticket.
The club was set up recently for Royal staff and guests and has already shown Star Wars at the castle – but to have a live band and big screen film was a first.


Tanning salon owner Erika Baker, 48, from Windsor, said: ‘Members of the Royal Household were allowed to buy tickets for themselves and guests.

'It meant lots of ordinary people from Windsor could come in for the night.'
‘Everybody was very well behaved, and once you were inside you were encouraged to really let your hair down and dance and sing.'

The Queen hires ABBA tribute band for Windsor Castle party !


The Queen opened up Windsor Castle to her 500 staff and guests for an ABBA inspired party it has been revealed.

According to The Mail on Sunday, Her Majesty gave permission for a party to be held in the castle for her hardworking staff and their guests.

For £12.50 a ticket, the party attendees were treated to a showing of the blockbuster film Mamma Mia!, as well as live music from an ABBA tribute band.

One Windsor resident told the Mail: “Members of the Royal Household were allowed to buy tickets for themselves and guests. 

“It meant lots of ordinary people from Windsor could come in for the night.
“Everybody was very well behaved, and once you were inside you were encouraged to really let your hair down and dance and sing.”
The Queen is reportedly a huge fan of ABBA and loves to dance along to the music.

BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans told a friend that Her Majesty made the revelation during a dinner at Windsor Castle much to the amusement of guests.

When the song Dancing Queen came on, she apparently said: “I always try to dance when this song comes on, because I am the Queen, and I like to dance.”

Guests were said to have been surprised by the news, reacting: “My goodness me, there is the Dancing Queen.”



The 91-year-old Monarch is known to be a fan of music, and recently revealed she would love to sing.

This revelation comes from 23-year-old Laura Wright, who will be performing the National Anthem this weekend at the England versus Wales rugby match at Twickenham Stadium.

According to Ms Wright, The Queen told her that she would love to be able to sing and has even personally been told by Gary Barlow himself that it is “just a matter of learning”.

MA'AM-A Mia GIG
 

The Queen opens up Windsor Castle to allow Abba tribute band to perform for 500 music fans

 

After the concert, that took place yards from The Queen's private royal apartments, the hit film Mamma Mia, was shown on a giant screen in her Quadrangle.

THE Queen threw open the gates of Windsor Castle to allow 500 music fans in to dance the night away to an Abba tribute band — right outside her own private royal apartments.

And then when it got dark she gave permission for the hit film Mamma Mia, based on the music of Abba, to be shown on a giant screen in her Quadrangle to carry on the party.

It was no surprise the Queen gave it the thumbs up after DJ Chris Evans revealed that Abba’s Dancing Queen was her favourite song and that she was a huge fan of the group.

Hundreds of fans dressed in 1970s and 1980s costumes sipped champagne and boogied the night away as guests of the Windsor Castle Cinema Club paying £12.50 for a ticket.

The Royal Quadrangle is rarely open to the public but last month while the Queen was at Balmoral she allowed it to be opened up for household staff and their guests to enjoy.

The Windsor Castle Cinema Club was set up recently and has already shown Star Wars at the Castle — but to have a live band and big screen film is a first at the Queen’s home.

Her Majesty was dubbed the Dancing Queen by the Swede Dreamz Abba tribute band that played more than 20 of the super-group’s top hits including Mamma Mia and Waterloo.

Hits like Knowing Me Knowing You, Chiquitita, Super Trouper and Money, Money, Money reverberated off the castle walls taking their fans back to the Swedish band’s heyday.
