A POPULAR activity that helps families to get out-and-about, will return in just six weeks.

Beat the Street usually runs throughout the summer and saw 25,000 people take part in last year's event.

It requires participants to earn points by checking sensor points which are dotted around the town.

Players gain points based on how many beat boxes they visit in one hour.

This year's event will kick off on June 6 and will run until July 22.
