The Saturday night spectacular from Generik Vapeur and Gorilla Circus is billed as a "high-octane call-to-arms for humanity's future."

The procession starts from Trafalgar Road from 9pm, and is expected to last for about 90 minutes.

Joe Mackintosh, director, said: "The Saturday Night Spectacular this year is of huge significance.

"Thank You For Having Us is the result of ten years of co-operation between SeaChange Arts and French street art titans Générik Vapeur, who have formed a collaborative performance with the brilliant and young UK company, Gorilla Circus.

"The performance is the first major large scale outdoor show made by a UK and French company for about 25 years."
