The ceremony, which will start at 10am, will be attended by the Lord Mayor, who will deliver a speech to acknowledge the honour and thank the Royal Navy for their work and dedication.

Royal Navy personnel will form at Armada Way ‘The Piazza’. The Lord Mayor and dignitaries will leave the Council House in procession and proceed to Armada Way “Piazza Seating area”, where he will deliver his speech.

The Royal Marine band will also be present and will form outside the Theatre Royal and will proceed along the footpath to the main crossing on Royal Parade and cross on Armada Way.

There will be a slight delay for traffic on Royal Parade between 9.55am and 10.05am as there will be a temporary road closure to allow the band to cross the road at the Armada Way pedestrian crossing.
