Due to a forecast of heavy rain and strong winds tomorrow (Wednesday 20 September) the Royal Navy Freedom of the City 60th anniversary event will be held in the Guildhall, starting from 9.30am. The event was originally intended to be held at The Piazza on Armada Way.
The event is open to the public but space will be limited inside the Guildhall. It would be best for members of the public to come along just before 9.30am to see the event.
The ceremony, 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. The Royal Marine Band will also be present at the ceremony, with Royal Navy personnel.
There will no longer be a temporary road closure on Royal Parade at the Armada Way pedestrian crossing.
