<p>The Olympic Flame will be stopping for an evening in Weymouth during its tour of the UK, and the three Olympic Torch Relay partners, together with the borough council, have put on an excellent show to celebrate its arrival. If you’re staying in <a href=”https://www.hideaways.co.uk/holiday-cottages-in-dorset”>Dorset cottages</a> on Thursday July 12th, then you’ll have the chance to attend and see the county come together around this symbol of hope and unity.</p> <p>Several performers have already been announced, including Twist and Pulse, the comedy dance duo recently seen on Britain’s Got Talent. The celebration will last for two-and-a-half hours and see local bands and schoolchildren taking to the stage. Finally, there will be a firework display, the first of many that Weymouth will hold this summer.</p> <p>Of course, the torch will be passing through plenty of locations in Dorset, so you’ll be able to head to any of those near you to see it even if you unable to reach the evening celebrations.</p>
