Unofficial torch relay event

A COMMUNITY art event featuring an “unofficial Olympic Torch relay” will take place in Scarborough from noon on Thursday.

Torch Me Up will feature local artists from varying walks of life.

The one-off performance is the idea of local performance artists Christophe Alix and Andrew Head.

The performance will hear the streets of Scarborough echo to the sound of pounding feet as individual runners in the town centre make their way to the foreshore for the climax of the event, as “runners converge and dreams collide”.
