Celebrate Norfolk’s Olympic-inspired projects in at Norwich’s Big Screen

Projects which have been inspired by the forthcoming 2012 Olympic Games will be celebrated in Norwich this week.

UK Inspire Day will take place across the country on Wednesday to celebrate the London 2012 Inspire programme.

There have been 225 projects in the east of England which have been awarded the coveted Inspire mark and become part of the London 2012 Inspire programme - a scheme that has already given 10 million people across the UK an opportunity to join in with Games-inspired activity and try something new.

As part of tomorrow's celebrations, a special preview screening of Response Theatre's short films, a series of monologues based upon the Olympic and Paralympic Values, will be shown at the Big Screen at Chapelfield Plain at lunchtime on Wednesday.

Accompanying the films will be a collection of short animations from the Hethersett cluster of primary schools that explore London as a host city in 1908, 1948 and 2012. The somewhereto_ project will also be welcoming local dance groups to take part in the celebration.
