THE streets of Ryde will be full of revellers on Saturday as March of the Mods returns for its fifth year.

As part of a national event, the Isle of Wight leg is the only event that holds an actual march from venue to venue, with DJs and live music at each.

All the proceeds from ticket sales go directly to the Teenage Cancer Trust, with money directed to the Southampton General Hospital ward that helps Isle of Wight teenagers.

All the artists performing do so free of charge.

In the last four years, the event has raised more than £20,000 for the charity.

A spokesperson for the event said: "It's always a great day, a fantastic busy atmosphere with some great music.

"It's free all day, but we hope everybody buys a £10 day wrist band or a £5 evening one to support the charity and respect the artists that are giving up their time to make the day work."

The event will start at The Simeon Arms, meeting at 1pm. The congregation will march to Ryde Pavilion for 3pm, the Esplanade Hotel for 5pm and then back to Ryde Pavilion from 8pm until late for a night of music.
