Horses will parade around Ardingly Showground – depicting transport through the ages.

The London Harness Horse Parade is set to take place on April 6.

As always we are looking forward to an even bigger 2015 parade.

The annual event is an amalgamation of The London Cart Horse Parade, which started in 1885 and the London Van Horse Parade which started in 1904.

The parade has been expanded to include a display of the earliest motor cars, vintage tractors, historic and classic cars.

Jackie Shearman, parade secretary, said: “As always we are looking forward to an even bigger 2015 parade.

“Indications are that there will be a good cross-section of transport through the ages to entertain the spectators this Easter Monday and I urge anyone who hasn’t taken part before or hasn’t joined us for a few years to support us this year and see just how much the parade has expanded while still retaining the same family traditions from years gone by.”

Gates will open at 8.30am and the parade will start at 10.30am.

Tickets are £7 per person and parking and children are free.
