Olympic Torch Relay

Friday, December 9th, 2011

ccclogo-125We’re delighted to announce that infinitemonkey’s Toby Venables has just been appointed as Olympic Torch Relay Media Liaison for Cambridge City Council. This is in essence a press and PR role, involving the dissemination of key information on the progress of the Olympic Flame to all local media, as well as offering related human interest stories and organising interviews and photocalls.

The Olympic Flame will arrive in the UK from Greece on Friday 18 May 2012 and the 70 day Torch Relay will start at Land’s End, Cornwall on the morning of 19 May 2012. On leaving Land’s End, the Olympic Flame is expected to travel an estimated 8,000 miles across the UK, giving thousands of communities and individuals their moment to shine as the Olympic Flame comes to their doorstep.

The flame will arrive on Parker’s Piece in Cambridge for an evening celebration at The Big Weekend on Saturday 7 July 2012, finally arriving at the Olympic Stadium on 27 July 2012 for the lighting of the cauldron at the opening ceremony, signifying the start of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

So, still time to get a bit of training in…
