The Olympic Torch Relay will be making a stop at Middlesex University, just two days before the 2012 Olympic Games begin in London.
Middlesex Vice-Chancellor Michael Driscoll, the Mayor of London Boris Johnson and the Mayor of Barnet Cllr Brian Schama will welcome the torchbearers, including 100-year-old Diana Gould, a local resident, and Harry Potter star Rupert Grint.
Entertainment will begin at 12pm with performances from several talented Middlesex students, as well as the Jewish Lads and Girls Brigade, Barnet Youth Brass Band and quartet Simply Sax. Former Middlesex student Denis Muggaga will perform with Ganda Boys bandmates Craig Pruess and Daniel Sewagudde, who all met while producing BAFTA-nominated music for the 2009 TV series ‘Moses Jones’.
Barnet Council anticipates as many as 35,000 people will come to see the torch as it passes along The Burroughs.
Location: Hendon campus
11am The Burroughs is closed to traffic between 11am and 3pm. The closure is likely to be between either A41 or Brampton Way, and Brent Street.
