And details of what's happening on Carnival Day itself, on Wednesday,  August 17, have been revealed, with events including a jousting tournament, a falconry display and a parade, as well as the likely highlight - the RAF Red Arrows display.

Here is a rundown of some of the day's attractions, all of which take place on Runton Road except where noted:
