Norwich Olympic Torch Relay 2012

​We are very excited that Norwich has been chosen as one of the destination cities for the Olympic Torch Relay. There will be a whole city celebration welcoming the Olympic Torch to the streets of Norwich on Wednesday 4 and Thursday 5 July.

We have a jam-packed programme which will continue late into the evening, including the Olympic stage show, a scintillating line-up of bands and street theatre in the city centre, and a spectacular 3D video projection.

The route will be animated with inspirational activities created by arts organisations and communities who have worked together to design and make giant puppets, flags, massive bunting, and human pyramids. Trees along the route will be wrapped in Olympic colours, banners draped from lamp posts and the whole city dressed to welcome the Torch.
