Around 80 per cent of all tickets are already gone for tonight’s event, a spokesman for Derbyshire County Council said: “Don’t risk being turned away at the gate. Our best advice is to save cash by booking online as soon as possible.”

This evening’s event will feature an additional Halloween-themed ‘ghouls catwalk’ show at 6.10pm.

That will be followed by a ‘fire and glow’ show at 6.30pm, before the main boat parade gets under way at 7pm.
