The Olympic Torch Bearers have been in the limelight recently, and now it's your chance to become a Weymouth Torch Wader.

The only skill required is an ability to stand in the sea on the 28th July - holding a lit torch.

About 400 more people are needed to hit organisers' symbolic target of two thousand and twelve for the grand finale of outdoor show Battle for the Winds.

Individuals or groups can register to take part HERE 

If you would like to talk to someone about volunteering as a Torch Wader, contact Jon Beedell at jon@desperatemen.com or on 0117 939 3902 / 0117 902 9730.
