Robin will ride through the streets of Oxfordshire in a glass-sided carriage drawn by four horses and taken to a private church service for family and friends.

One of his biggest hits ‘I Started A Joke’ and a new song ‘Don’t Cry Alone’ from his Titanic Requiem will be played at the funeral.

Fans wishing to get a glimpse of the carriage can gather along High Street. The carriage will start its journey at 1.30pm at Priests End and travel to the Town Hall then back through High Street to St Mary Church.

Robin Gibb died from kidney failure on May 20, 2012 at the age of 62.
