I went along and stood outside Shakespeare’s Birthplace as the Olympic Torch came through Stratford-upon-Avon today and got these photos of the Olympic Torch Relay.
The last few photos show 83 year old local resident Peter Wyatt passing over the Olympic flame to another local Stratford resident 19 year old Camilla Hadland outside Shakespeare’s Birtplace.
A bit of a shame the local Stratford tourist board didn’t do a bit more, you would have thought the Olympic Flame passing by a building as iconic as Shakespeare’s Birthplace would have called for something a little more special.
I was fully expecting to see a few celebs there, either some Shakespearean actors or local Olympians, it was still nice though and well worth the trip and waiting.
Were you outside Shakespeares Birthplace for the Olympic Torch Relay?
