Olympic fever


OLyMPIC fever is not just about sport and in stark contrast to the crowds, cheers and competition of the Torch Relay, a peaceful art exhibition will be set up at Valtos this summer.

Inspired by the Olympic Truce, renowned director Deborah Warner has been commissioned to create a coastal installation encircling the UK in collaboration with actor Fiona Shaw.

Eight glowing encampments will appear around the UK including the beach at Valtos.
