Drivers will also only be able to travel east along The Lane between Stowe Hill and the North Roundabout between 6pm and 9pm.

Parking is also set to be restricted during the event. It will only be allowed on the northern side of Harbour Road between Manse Road and Lovers Lane, with no parking permitted between Highwood Lane and 600ft west of Lovers Lane, where road works are ongoing.
