They also advise people to find a marshal on arrival, who will escort them to a position.

The organisers said: “We feel it is especially important to galvanise young people to support this movement and the evolution of change to actively work towards being anti-racist so do bring your family and friends along.

“I would like to ask for no alcohol to be brought to the event to ensure it stays peaceful and family friendly. I hope everyone can respect these rules.”
