As well as this there will be poetry, music and lights capes throughout the parade.

The event will start at 10.45am.

At Wollaton park families can also come together to show their solidarity and raise money at Poppy Run Nottingham.

The event is open to all ages and abilities, where you can walk, jog or run at your own pace, and you can even bring along any four-legged friends.

The race starts at 11am on Sunday 4 November, it is £15 for adults, £7.50 for seven to 17-year-olds and free for children aged six and under.

The Royal British Legion are encouraging people to raise £50 that will go towards veterans’ recovery who are struggling with physical and mental challenges.
