The parade will make its way down the seafront and back up to St Mary In The Castle - all you need to take part is an umbrella.

The Umbrella Parade is a highlight of Preservation Sunday with festival-goers enjoying food and drink with great music, as the rivalry of the second line bands comes to a head in a dramatic play off, and there is also Under The Radar not to be missed with four stages showcasing emerging artists from across the UK, and Thee Sunday Sonics at Blackmarket VIP in George Street, with DJs from 1-5pm, Vile Electrodes at 8.30pm, and Radiophonic Workshop at 9.45pm.
