Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance today said it was delighted to be chosen as the starting point for the London 2012 Olympic torch relay on Monday 23 July. Lewisham Council nominated Trinity Laban as the starting point for the Lewisham leg of the relay and are extremely proud that the nomination was successful.
The Principal of Trinity Laban, Professor Anthony Bowne, said Trinity Laban was honoured to be taking part in London 2012 history:
"We are a world class conservatoire for music and contemporary dance students both locally and from around the world - but we are also deeply proud of our Deptford roots and our work with the local community, and we would like to thank Lewisham Council for nominating us."
"We also have key Olympic links, as our Stirling award winning Trinity Laban building in Deptford was designed by Herzog and de Meuron, who designed Beijing's Birds Nest Olympic Stadium."
Mayor of Lewisham, Sir Steve Bullock, said, "Trinity Laban is a landmark building in Lewisham and we are delighted at the success of our nomination. Welcoming the torch relay to our borough will be just the start of our celebrations of the London 2012 Olympics."
Once it leaves Trinity Laban in Deptford, Lewisham, the torch will then be welcomed in Bromley, Croydon, Sutton, Merton and Wandsworth.
