As well as all the activities and entertainment that will be taking place at Manor Heath Park, visitors can watch the procession pass through the town centre ahead of the event.

The procession will set off from Eureka car park at 11.30am and there will be plenty of places to see it pass before it reaches Manor Heath Park.

The group will travel from the car park up Church Street and left along Square Road where it will then turn right by the Imperial Crown Hotel and up Horton Street.

From there visitors will be able to line Union Street and Market Street to watch the procession pass before it turns left up Old Market and begins the route out of town along Corn Market and Southgate.

After travelling up Ward's End and turning left by the Victoria Theatre, the group will head along Skircoat Road and then up Heath Road before heading up Manor Heath Road and into the park.

With the official opening ceremony taking place at 1pm, it’s expected that the procession will arrive around 12.30pm
