Olympic Torch Relay Newcastle City 15 June 2012

Alan Hillary Events partnered with David Bilton of DGB Events to create the ideal team to deliver the Newcastle leg of the Olympic Torch Relay on behalf of Newcastle City Council.

It was a pleasure and a privilege to paly such a vital role inthe delivery of the event, which was a massive success for the region.

The Olympic Flame entered Newcastle on the 28th day of the relay. Twenty four torch bearers carried the flame along 7.2 miles of the City’s roads, culminating at the Olympic Flame stage on Newcastle Quayside after being delivered by zip wire in front of a crowd of around 25,000 lining both sides of the river.

The flame was transported 400m by zip wire from the top of the Tyne Bridge’s 195ft arch by Chief Scout and ex-SAS action man, Bear Grylls.

Alan Hillary Events and DGB Events were responsible for the successful delivery of route management, spectator safety and event production.
