The Procession itself!

The procession paraded itself through Exeter city centre yesterday afternoon. The streets were lined through Princesshay, Southernhay and the Cathedral Green with spectators eagerly anticipating the event. The near-two hour route lets the olympics festivities engross the city for an afternoon, before the arrival of the Olympic Torch itself in the evening, at a ticket-holders event on the Cathedral Green.

All participants did extremely well, and the performers of the University of Exeter led the procession with pride. 

A huge well done to all those involved!

Battle for the Winds route rehearsal

Yesterday, May 10th, the entire Exeter University Battle for the Winds cast walked from Roborough Studios (on university campus) to the Exeter Cathedral Green in full costume, complete with horse puppets! They had a photo shoot with the Express and Echo photographer on the Cathedral Green before processing back to campus.  There was a lot of interest from the public, especially some very sweet exchanges with children and dogs who didn’t quite know what to make of the horses!  The rehearsal was a great success for performers and public alike. ImageImageImage
