* The parade will be starting and ending at the gallery. There will be a circuit of the town, along the high street, along the harbour, past the Bath House, along the Promenade, up Beach Road, over the level crossing and back up to the gallery. The timings are approximate. Last year in cool weather it took an hour, but that was a little rushed.
