Olympic Torch Relay 2012 – Manchester

25/06/2012 § Leave a comment

With the Olympics just over a month away, it’s time for a Torch Relay.

By the time the torch relay arrives at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, London on July 27th, it will have gone all around the UK & Ireland, carried by selected members of the general public as well as celebrities and Olympians.

On Saturday 23rd June, the Torch arrived in Manchester and the crowds came out to witness this historical day. Lining the streets and watching the festivities pass by, onlookers got to see Gold-medal-winning cyclist Sir Chris Hoy carry the torch down Deansgate in the city centre as part of the relay.

The party began with dancers and performers working the crowd up, getting us all ready for the torch to light up the streets of Manchester – and it sure did, with the day ending with an evening celebration at Albert Square. As usual click the images to enlarge them.

The procession arrives, and Manchester awaits the arrival of the Torch.

I hope you enjoy the photos, feel free to leave comments, till next time.

Thanks

Steven.
