Manchester City Council hopes that residents will “Line the Streets” to cheer on their torchbearers and celebrate work they have done to improve life in their neighbourhoods.
The first part of the Torch Relay Convoy will pass through 5 to 7 minutes ahead of the torchbearer part of the convoy. This will include further ‘presenting partners’ who will give out Torch Relay Keepsakes to waiting crowds. The second part of the Convoy, consisting of the torchbearer with media and security vehicles, will then pass.

Standing on the left hand side of the street the Olympic Flame is being carried along will mean you are, generally, nearer to the Torchbearers and therefore get the best view of the action.
A free breakfast and hot drinks are available at the Powerhouse Library on Raby Street from 7:00am
