Alnwick Welcomes the Olympic Torch

Alnwick and the surrounding areas have been given a once in a lifetime opportunity to showcase everything fabulous about the area. The Olympic Torch Relay will arrive in Alnwick on the 14th June 2012. Alnwick Town Council have embraced this opportunity and are organising a week-long festival in the town from Saturday 9th June until Friday 15th June.

We would like to invite every business, group, school and organisation to join in and take part in the week. There are ways in which everyone can be involved and we need you to contact us. This is very much a community orientated event and the eyes of the world will be on Alnwick for some time during the week.

Please contact Karen Larkin or Bill Batey if you would like to be involved or would like more information about what is going on. We would love to hear from you.

The website shall be constantly evolving and much more detail will be here about the festival, who's taking part and opportunities for more people to get involved.
