Cardiff City promotion celebrations: details of open top bus parade revealed

Details of the celebrations to mark Cardiff City’s promotion to the Premier League have been revealed.

The event will start at Cardiff Castle at around 5.45pm on Sunday, finishing in Cardiff Bay at around 9.15pm.

Malky Mackay and the Cardiff City squad will leave Cardiff Castle to greet waiting supporters, heading on to High Street with the Football League Trophy in hand.

The squad and coaching staff will then board open top double decker buses, which will then make their way down St Mary Street, passing Mill Lane.

The buses will then travel down Callaghan Square and Lloyd George Avenue, heading to Cardiff Bay.

At around 7pm the squad will arrive at the Wales Millennium Centre ahead of a reception at the Senedd, hosted by education minister Leighton Andrews.

From around 8.30pm the squad will be introduced on stage to supporters at Roald Dahl Plass in Cardiff Bay (the Oval Basin).

The Football League Trophy will be paraded by Warrant Officer 1 (GSM) Ceri Caesar and members of the Welsh Guards before being presented to Mackay by Cardiff council leader, Heather Joyce.

There will then be a firework display over the harbour.

Supporters can also gather at Roald Dahl Plass from 3pm to take in the atmosphere.

There will be live bands and special guests during the afternoon and evening, including a performance by tenor Wynne Evans.

Large screens will be in place at the Bay, showing Cardiff City video highlights.
