Rugby Borough Council has announced that The Warwickshire Band is to lead a parade through Rugby to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The Warwickshire Band, the voluntary military band of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, is made up of current and ex-members of the Regiment, and is based in Coventry.

The parade will be the highlight of a weekend of events planned by Rugby Borough Council in partnership with Rugby First and principal sponsor CEMEX.

It will be attended by the Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire representing Her Majesty the Queen, on the specially extended Bank Holiday weekend, 2-5 June 2012.

Chris Worman, Rugby Borough Council's Parks Manager, said:

"There are a whole host of spectacular events and activities planned for the Jubilee weekend, and especially on Saturday 2 June in the town centre and Caldecott Park.
"With their bright red tunics, and with the promise of other military personnel joining them, the Warwickshire Band will provide a striking and memorable lead-off to the Jubilee parade.
"The parade will be followed by a procession made up of community groups and organisations, and I am still looking for more people to take part."

The parade, of up to 2000 people, will pass through the independent businesses area before saluting the Mayor and Lord Lieutenant at the Clock Tower, built in 1897 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee.
Groups or organisations wishing to take part in the procession can contact Chris on (01788) 533653.
