The Priest’s House Museum & Garden in Wimborne Minster presents ‘The Flaming Torch – Champion Sporting Myths and Legends’ with Tony Horitz on Friday 24 August.
What do ancient Greek wrestlers and Dorset train drivers have in common with tortoises? Answer: they’ve all been champion athletes, each in their unique style! To find out more about the Bronze Statue Lifter and the Shapwick Express, who ran on track and field, join Tony as he reveals fascinating tales of some great sports people – and asks you to decide on who gets the medals! Plus a chance to win gold at a unique Poetry Sporting Event!
