London 2012 Olympics: Wrexham Torch Relay / Wrecsam Cyfnewid Torch #bbctorchcam
A great morning in Wrexham to welcome the London 2012 Olympic Torch. Wrexham-based band Heal the Last Stand got the crowd in the mood for the arrival with their wonderful folky acoustic song “and celebrate”
My new favourite people Heal the Last Stand
The Torch could be seen arriving on Llwyn Isaf.
Hoola Nation took to the stage after a local body-popping sensation
Before the kiss point exchange took place.
And then it was off on its way to Pontcysyllte and beyond…
Oriel Wrecsam had flag and windspinner workshops on Llwyn Isaf
Artist Jo Marsh showed people how to make them…
Some of the members of the incredible Wrexham Community Choir arrived to sing on the stage.
Before moving into the gallery for even more wonderful singing. The whole thing was spine-tingly
And then the incredibly talented artist Estelle Woolley did a performance piece based on Gershwin’s Summertime involving her clarinet and post-it notes… fantastic
Thank you everyone for making it Wrexham’s moment to shine!
