The event will finish with a fireworks display.

Event organiser Southbourne councillor Eddie Coope said: “We were asked by many local residents to put something on to celebrate Her Majesty’s Jubilee and also to raise funds for the local NHS and to recognise what a fabulous job that they have been doing over the last years years and that we are incredibly lucky to have the NHS and is envied around the world. 

“After two years of very little social events we believe it is now the time to celebrate and get back to some normality. 

“We very much hope that everyone will support this special event and look forward to seeing everyone.”
