At 11am on Thursday 1 October, the Welsh Guards will begin to parade from the top of Cambrian Road (outside Wetherspoons) to Bridge Street and then through High Street to the D-Day Memorial.

A short ceremony will take place before the parade again moves off through High Street and along Commercial Street to its junction with Charles Street.  

This is a wonderful sight to see so come along to the city centre and watch the ceremony.
