Teesside's Olympic gold medallist Kat Copeland will be the guest of honour at a homecoming party in Stockton tonight.
The 21-year-old and her rowing partner Sophie Hosking took the gold in the Women's lightweight double sculls at London 2012.
The celebration for Kat is being held at Tees Rowing Club, where she trains. Members of the public are invited to the riverbank between the Princess of Wales Bridge and the Infinity Bridge.
Kat is expected to show off her gold medal from the balcony of the rowing clubhouse, overlooking the riverbank, at 6:30pm.
