Sidmouth Regatta returns this weekend with a line-up of activities and events for all the family.

Tonight (Friday), the famous Red Arrows will soar over the seafront at 6.30pm and are expected to draw thousands of spectators onto The Esplanade.

Organisers are appealing for volunteers to help collect donations to make sure the aerobatic team returns next year.

Tomorrow (Saturday) there will be the popular adult three-legged race, which commences at Port Royal at 1pm, and will take a route around six of the town’s pubs. Also on Saturday, there will be sailing and swimming races, the raft race, a display by Exmouth Lifeboat, music by The Culprits and a grand fireworks display at 9.30pm.

Sunday is also jam-packed with events for children, including drawing competitions, fancy-dress and a treasure hunt.
