On Friday 20 July 2012, we will host the last Olympic torch celebration before it makes its way to London. The final route of the torch, and how it will get between the celebration locations, is still being planned and will be announced by LOCOG later this year. We will then know where in the borough the torch will travel to get to Stoke Park for the evening celebration. This event will offer thousands of local residents and visitors the opportunity to share in the Olympic spirit.
We are now planning the celebration with our partners and want to involve our local community as much as possible. Guildford already has a proud Olympic legacy from the London Games in 1948, when the torch last made its way through the borough. We hope that future generations will look back on 20 July 2012 as another historic day to remember for everyone involved.
The latest information on the Torch Relay Route and celebration in Guildford and other local Olympic news will be available here. Please visit the London 2012 website for more information on the Olympic Torch Relay and the nomination process for local torch bearers.
