Thousands of supporters are expected to line the route, with road closures in place that afternoon to allow the parade to take place.

The closures will include no parking all day in Mercer s Row, George Row and Wood Hill; there will be no vehicular access to St Giles Square between 3.30pm and 6.30pm and Bridge Street will be closed to all vehicles except buses from 3.30pm-6.30pm.
