Olympic Torch to visit Norwich next week

The Olympic Torch will be heading to Norwich next week.

It will arrive at the University of East Anglia in a big red Coca-Cola tour bus on Monday, October 31.

Students and members of the public will have the chance to have their photo taken with the torch between 12pm and 6pm. There will also be an opportunity to sign up to volunteer at the Olympics and a number of free sports-related activities, put on by the Union of UEA Students, including pick up and play touch rugby.

The bus will be parked in Union Place, outside Nelson Court. The Coca-Cola tour will be visiting 20 universities this autumn as part of the NUS' London 2012 Inspired project Be a Champion. The project aims to find young people who are passionate about their hobby to inspire others.
