Live music at The Swan for Oktoberfest. A welcome return for Mark and Sherridan who will play a couple of sets on Fri between 7 and 9:30pm. Also a warm welcome to James Brown for his first musical appearance at The Swan. He is a guitarist and singer and is closing our Oktoberfest weekend.  James' last 'public appearance' was with Louise at their wedding.


The BBQ team will be cooking up a feast each day during Oktoberfest. Fri 5 - 8pm; Sat & Sun 1 - 8pm. As well as all the usual delights there will be Bavarian themed foods to tempt you!


Three outstanding biers from two lesser known Brauereien, but please don't let that fool you. These 200 year old breweries have an excellent pedigree of producing very quaffable biers that the Franconian's love. Click for more info. Also Hofmeister Ultra Low (0.5% ABV) Prost!


This Saturday’s bike ride from The Swan will be a 'Gentle Explorer' mainly on bike paths, but with some road riding around Eton etc. Setting off at 11:30 with a return expected at 12:45. Free bike safety checks by will be available from 11:00.


Simon, a local games inventor, is hosting another evening of exciting board games. Some you will be familiar with, some not so familiar! He will help set you up and get you going also with any questions you may have during the game. Come along, meet new people and try a game over a pint. All welcome, no need to book.


It's never too late to learn. Why not try your hand at cribbage? There is an informal group meeting at The Swan with a view to playing on a regular basis. You don't need to know, the experienced players will be explaining all the rules and helping novices through the whole process. Once up and running, people find it is very enjoyable, addictive and a great night out. Tue at 7pm. 


Local Creatives, an art academy offering leisure based art sessions for adults taught by professionals, will be offering a mix of drawing and painting sessions ideal for complete beginners or those with previous experience. 
£5 for the first session, £20 per session thereafter. For more information or to join, please contact, call 07557 226263 or visit their website

As Windsor Homeless Project is our community charity for 2021, we would like to gather a team to join us at this year's Sleep Out on Fri 15 Oct in the secure grounds of Windsor College. Details can be found on the posters and fliers in the pub, or via this link. You will need to register on the WHP website and then tell your family and friends so they can sponsor you. Please tell Rachel Cross once you've registered so that we know who's joining us. The more the merrier!


Another sell out success at Epic Thursday, with pie and mash going down a treat with customers. GR6 students have been experiencing the many roles required in running a community-focussed hospitality event. This week they looked extra special in their new Swan uniforms - unique to members of GR6 and the Wings programme, which together form the Swan Education project. Last night a delayed end of term GR6 Awards Night saw many old faces reunited to celebrate what was a strange but brilliant year last year. 



Progress has continued as the ceiling in The Kitchen is now fully plastered. The Warriors have kept busy outside where there is an urgent need to provide a fully functioning cellar hatch. After a lot of measuring, and digging in a confined space a template has been built and installed ready for concrete that is due to be poured in on Monday.

Warm regards,

The Friends of The Swan
