“So please join us, decorate your umbrellas and become part of our extravaganza.

“Radiator Arts are on board again this year organising two fabulous free drop-in workshops so come along and pimp up your umbrella ahead of the parade.

“The workshops are suitable for everyone. Children must be accompanied by an adult. It will take about one hour to pimp up a brolly but visitors can spend longer if they wish.

“We will have a wonderful array of materials to use and a limited number of umbrellas so if visitors can bring their own that would be great.”

The Fat Tuesday Parade will start from the Stade at midday on Sunday, March 3, and travel down the seafront, round the roundabout and back up to St Mary In The Castle.
