Luton Town Football Club will celebrate promotion back to the Football League with an open top bus tour and reception in the town.

The team will leave their Kenilworth Road ground at 11:30 BST on 4 May and travel to St George's Square in the town centre.

BBC Three Counties Radio will then host a staged event before the squad attends a private reception in the town hall.

Managing director Gary Sweet said the team was "buzzing" about the event.

"We have had a packed Kenilworth Road for the last two games but this is something for the town where everybody can come along and join a party and see the trophy and the players," he said.

"We can thank them too because everybody in the town has been supportive."

The last time the club toured the town on an open top bus was at the end of the 2008/9 season as winners of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

But that was also the season they were relegated to the Conference Premier League.
