Then at 12pm on Saturday, the Carnival Parade – with a ‘Magic of the Movies’ theme – starts at North Bromsgrove High School, journeying down School Drive, The Strand, Market Street and the Kidderminster Road en route to the arena in Sanders Park.

In the park will be performances in the bandstand, a host of community, charity and business stalls stalls, along with a food village from Social Eats.
