The Olympic torch is due to visit Brockenhurst College on July 14, an event that the College plans to celebrate by hosting a Sporting and Cultural Olympiad on the same day.

The event will give visitors the chance to try new sports, as well as bring the College and local residents closer together.

A marching band and dance display will showcase their abilities, with a varied programme of activities on offer, from archery to shooting to hockey.

The torch will pass through Brockenhurst just after 10.25am and will stop at the College for 20 minutes before continuing its journey through Hampshire.

Di Roberts, Brockenhurst’s principal, said: “We strongly believe in giving back to our local community and what better way than to bring people together for this historic once in a lifetime opportunity and get up close to the Olympic Torch relay.”
