"The countdown’s officially on and we want everyone to have a great time. Plan your journeys in advance, think about what you need to take and allow yourself plenty of time to get there.

You should also check the terms and conditions – make sure you know what you can and can’t take to the event, how many children are allowed per adult and so on. Think about the weather too and keep an eye of the forecast – it’s really important to stay hydrated and wear suitable clothing."

– Cllr Glenn Jordan, Plymouth City Council

Devon & Cornwall Police and event organisers will be using a safety drone to monitor crowd levels around the site.
