Olympic Torch in South Wiltshire
The eyes of the World have been on South Wiltshire as the Olympic Torch made its way through our hometowns on Wednesday 11th & Thursday 12th July, taking in iconic places such as Stonehenge and the Salisbury Cathedral.
Thousands turned out to witness the event and made the most of Salisbury being chosen as an overnight stay for the Torch.
The Festival of Celebration attracted 30,000 people to Hudson's Field to see acts like Wretch 32 on the LOCOG stage, Britain’s Got Talent finalists Twist & Pulse and local talent Salisbury Plain Military Wives Choir and City Stereo.
Not to mention former Olympic Gold Medallist Michael Johnson starting the relay again on Thursday from Salisbury Cathedral where hundreds lined the close to catch a glimpse of the Olympic legend!
It's been an amazing 2 days for everyone in South Wiltshire, and if you want to relive the magic, take a look at the photos taken by us and those that have been sent in by you!
