Olympic torch to visit Bamburgh

THE Olympic torch is to pass through Berwick and Bamburgh on its way to Alnwick for a huge celebration on June 14th.

The torch will arrive in the area on Thursday, June 14, travelling down from Edinburgh, via Gordon, Greenlaw, Duns, Chirnside and Foulden, before crossing the border and in to Berwick then on to Bamburgh.

The Olympic flame will not be coming this way again in our lifetime. It is cliché but it is true – this really is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us all and I am sure that Northumberland residents will join together to show their support for the Olympics and to be a part of this exciting and memorable experience.”

Chris Calvert, director at Bamburgh Castle, said: “We hope to work with Bamburgh Parish Council to organise some kind of event around it. Now it has been announced we can see how we can maximise Northumberland’s exposure nationally and internationally.”

Sebastian Coe, chair of LOCOG, said: “We are thrilled to confirm that Northumberland will act as a host location for the Olympic flame, extending an invitation to people around the county to welcome the Olympic torch relay during its journey around the UK.

“This is the UK’s moment to shine and I want to encourage people across Northumberland to start planning how they can be part of this once in a lifetime opportunity and show their support for the inspirational torchbearers chosen to carry the Olympic flame as we count down to the start of the Olympic Games.”
