Wenlock Olympian Society here tomorrow

13 October 2017

The Wenlock Olympian Society will be hosting an exhibition in the Legends Bar in the Community Stand before tomorrow’s match against Blackpool.

This includes a real Olympic torch used in the London 2012 relay, as well as other displays about the Olympic Games.

Much Wenlock’s first Games took place in 1850, and the town is widely credited as inspiring the first global Olympics in 1896.

Olympics founder Baron Pierre de Coubertin visited the Wenlock event in 1890, and eventually organised the first international Olympic Games six years later.
