Where does the march start: The march will start at Festival Park in Cessnock and make its way into the city centre. The full route of the march has yet to be announced.

What are the Covid rules: Those taking part in the march are being asked by organisers to take a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) on the night before or morning of the march, to make sure they do not have Covid-19.

They are also asking people to consider wearing a mask.

Do I need to register: Walking groups with banners, or groups of more than nine people, need to register. Commercial organisations and those with vehicles or floats also need to register. This can be done through the website.
