Frequently asked questions
When will you know if the parade taking place?
We won’t know until after the match on Saturday 30 May. The match starts at 5.30pm.
You can check TV, news websites, or radio for results of the match.
Why have you decided to hold the parade?
Arsenal are a major part of Islington and the council wants to celebrate their success
with them and their supporters It is highly likely that celebrations would take place
anyway and it means it can be managed as part of an organised event.
Where is it best to watch the parade?
You will be able to view the parade along the entire route, but space is likely to be
limited. The heaviest numbers will be outside the Town Hall and in front of Emirates
Stadium and for safety reasons numbers will be restricted. It is best to watch from less
crowded parts of the route like St Paul’s Road. There will also be stewards and police
on-hand to help direct you on the day.
Will I be able to see the parade from more than one location?
Moving along the route will be very difficult. The best chance you have to see the parade
will be if stay in one location. It will not be possible to view the parade along the route or
from the Town Hall and then go to the Emirates Stadium as this area is likely to be full
from early morning.

If you are hoping to view from Upper Street it will be best to come from the direction of
Highbury Corner roundabout, either from Islington Park Street, or Canonbury Lane. If
you approach from Angel and Upper Street is full, you will be directed along Liverpool
Road or Essex Road to re-enter Upper Street from further up.
