THE Summer Festival Parade will return to March on June 8 and it promises to be one of the highlights of the town’s year.

This year’s event, which is expected to attract thousands of revellers, has a Best of British theme.

Floats will make their way up Broad Street during a colourful parade and music, dancing and excitement are guaranteed.

Councillor Rob Skoulding, who is organising the event with Graham Lichfield, would like the people of March to immerse themselves in what he says will be a memorable occasion,

He said: “Some people think the Best of British is Minis, others think it’s the Beatles.
