Later in the day, Maidenhead at the Proms is our riverside concert, view it across the water. Music includes piecs from the Beatles and Proms classics such as Rule Britannia.
The fireworks after the concert provide the traditional end to the carnival at around 10.30pm.
Whilst the above activities are all free, you are asked to give generously to the charity collectors in the area and at the exits!
