Today's 'Creatures of Bristol Carnival' procession will involve up to 150 people, including many children, musicians and local artists. They will process from the Tobacco Factory Theatre to North Street Green and back again, starting at 12pm.

Many of the creatures have been made at the Tobacco Factory's puppet workshops over the last two days. The event is part of the Bristol Festival of Puppetry.
