Due to the weather forecast, the area of promenade between Cove West cafe (opposite the Cabot Bars) and North of the Grand Pier will not be accessible between approximately 6pm and 8pm during the high tide to ensure public safety. Once the tide has turned and it is safe, the promenade barriers will be lifted allowing access to view the carnival procession when it arrives on the seafront at approximately 8pm.
Alternative arrangements have been made for the coaches that usually park in this area.
