We were delighted to find out that the Olympic Torch will be coming to De Beauvoir on the afternoon of Saturday 21 July.
The torch - which has been designed by Shoreditch-based duo Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby - will make its way up Kingsland Road, past Whitmore Estate, Kingsland Wharfs and Lockner Estate on its way to Stoke Newington where there will be a huge free community event in Clissold Park to celebrate the occasion. A carnival will accompany the torch as it passes through the borough.
We’re excited that the Torch is coming to De Beauvoir and look forward to celebrating with you! You can find out more about the Olympic Torch relay here.
