Street Performers Descend on Weymouth to Welcome Olympic Games
10:53am 26th July 2012
A huge artistic event is taking place on the streets of Weymouth today to mark the start of the Olympic Games.
Called Battle for the Winds it tells a story of "gathering the winds" from the South West, to help our sailors race to victory.
Acrobatics, visual arts, music and outdoor theatre make up the event with a grand finale on Saturday night (28th July 2012).
It's all part of the vast Maritime Mix Festival, an ambitious mix of artistic cultural events throughout South Dorset this summer.
