Middlesbrough's annual Trafalgar Day Parade and Service takes place on Sunday, October 24.

This year's event marks the 216th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar on the Sunday closest to October 21.

On that date in 1805, Admiral Lord Nelson defeated the French and Spanish fleets off Cape Trafalgar in south west Spain, losing his life at the height of his most famous victory. 

This year's Middlesbrough event will be held on the morning of Sunday, October 24 near The Cenotaph.

The Parade will form up at the East Lodge in Albert Park before marching to the South African War Memorial, where they will be met by dignitaries for the march to the Cenotaph for the Service at 11.30am.

Following the Service, the Parade will march through the park gates for the salute to be taken at the War Memorial. 

The Parade will then be dismissed. Refreshments will be served after the Parade at the Sea Cadets building in Albert Park.

The event will be attended by Sea Cadets from Middlesbrough, Hartlepool, Guisborough, Stockton and Redcar and civic dignitaries from all five boroughs.
