Festival of Suffolk - Torch Relay

The Suffolk Festival torch will make its way through Thurston on Monday 23rd May 2022 at approximately 4.15pm.

Two local heroes Hayley Pollard and Derrick Haley will be celebrated as The Festival of Suffolk Torch Relay travels through Thurston. Riding on a rickshaw, Hayley will travel from Pokeriage Corner along Thedwastre Road, Sandpit Lane, Norton Road and Station Hill ending up at the New Green Centre for a photo opportunity. Derrick will then have the torch as it leaves New Green Centre travelling along Station Hill and Norton Road terminating at the New Primary School.

Please do cheer them on as they ride through the village on the rickshaw. 

The torch will pass through 250 towns and villages, a distance of over 550 miles before reaching its final destination arriving at the Suffolk Show in Ipswich on Wednesday 1st June. There is a live GPS tracker of the route which will be fun to follow the torch on its journey.  Click here to follow:  https://www.festivalofsuffolk.org/best-of-suffolk-torch-tracker
