Sheffield hosted one of the 66 evening celebrations on the Olympic Flame’s journey across the UK. This was one of only 5 celebrations in Yorkshire and the Humber and was free for spectators to watch.
At the evening event London 2012 and the Presenting Partners of Lloyds TSB, Samsung and Coca-Cola will stage an exciting 2 hour entertainment show, and the Olympic Flame will light a cauldron marking the end of the day’s proceedings.
Hallam Union worked with local art organisation Art in the Park and Sheffield City Council to organise activities for the local community to celebrate the Olympic Flame coming to the City on Monday 25th June 2012.
The celebration event took place on Devonshire Green and the community was invited to come along and take part in lots of free craft activities and watch performances from Hallam students and local community groups. The event was supported by Hallam Union volunteers.
The event was a great build-up to the evening celebrations that took place in Sheffield City Centre.
