The Olympic Torch Visits Tamworth – In Pictures

Jul 1, 2012 by Warren

On Saturday 30 June, Tamworth played host to the Olympic Torch as it toured Staffordshire en route to London in time for the opening ceremony of this year’s Olympic games in London.

Thousands lined the streets from Hopwas, down the Lichfield Road into the Castle Grounds where Tamworth Borough Council had organised a day of events in celebration of Tamworth’s moment in the spotlight.

Below are a selection of pictures from the event.  We are keen to share Tamworthians pictures of the day, if you want your picture to be  displayed on Tamworth Live, send them through to, or tweet us @tamworthlive.

More pictures to follow.

  2. HI Stacy
    I made them all available to TBC. Also all the TBC Staff, Fire and Police have had copies of any pictures they were in. Anyone else who asked for copies have had them.

Have your say!

I'm sure we don't really need to tell you but please, keep it civil and healthy.
