The Olympic Torch Arrives in Barnsley

Today we had a welcome break from our desks and headed outside into the glorious Yorkshire sunshine to watch the Olympic Torch relay as it passed through Barnsley town centre.

Bighfoot Digital has its base in the Digital Media Centre, located just a short walk from the beautiful town hall and despite arriving early we were amazed at the crowds. We took a strategic position next to the BBC Radio Sheffield team and they advised us that the official estimate was that 40,000 people had lined the streets between Lundwood and the town centre – what a turnout!

Despite the crowds we managed to elbow our way to the front to capture a short video and take some snaps. We hope you like them!
