The Market Square will be transformed for the day evoking memories of the war years with a huge FREE Street Party that will feature refreshments and entertainment.

The live stage will start immediately after the parade and go on till 4pm. Visitors are encouraged to dress in the style of the period and engage with the street party activities.

Throughout the parade route, relevant organisations will be represented and the streets will be decorated to commemorate not only the 100 years since the end of the First World War but also the formation of the RAF.
