As Battle Day approaches this coming Thursday 8 August please allow extra time for your road journey (especially if you are heading to Jersey Airport or catch a ferry). Floats will start moving into the Battle Arena from across the Island in the early hours of the morning and therefore traffic delays are inevitable.

Victoria Avenue will also be closed to traffic from late morning on Thursday so please use an alternative route. Similarly, following the end of the Parade late afternoon, traffic delays are likely.

Top Tip: Why not delay making your journey home after Battle and come down to the International Food Village on the Waterfront instead, have a bite to eat, enjoy a tipple or two  and keep that party atmosphere going!!! 

Similar delays will be expected on the evening of Friday 9 August in preparation for the Moonlight Parade.
