There is also a free festival site set up in Leamington

A festival site was set up in Warwick over a week ago ahead of the start of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The site features a big screen showing the competitions taking place each day, as well as a seating area. There is also often accompanying activities.

Residents and visitors have had the chance to enjoy the free site since the Games started and it will continue to be in the town until after the closing ceremony.

Geoff Ousbey has sent in a few photos of Warwick’s festival site, which will also provide an alternative venue to watch the road race when it takes place through the town on Sunday.

Top athletes will take to their bikes for a men’s and a women’s race, which goes in and around the town on a 16km route.

The Women’s Race, which starts at 8am, will see cyclists complete seven laps and the Men’s Race, which starts at 12.30pm, will see cyclists complete 10 laps.

Here’s what’s happening at the festival site over the last remaining days of the games:
