Godiva Awakes...Tomorrow In Coventry

...and then she is off to London to celebrate Olympic 2012 and Paralympic Games powered by 100 cyclist.

University Square (looking towards Coventry Cathedral)
So the scene is set.  Here we have Lady Godiva standing 33ft high soon to be unveiled and move from Coventry to London powered by 100 cyclist.

It is reported that the unveiling of Godiva will include a production of dancers, actors, aerialists, musicians, pyrotechnicians, carnivalists and 220 young people in a procession. On 29th July, she will be the focal point of Coventry’s Godiva Carnival and will then journey from Coventry to London to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Her movements will be activated by four performers and her hand and eyes radio-controlled.

Oh my goodness, I would *love* to see this as it happens! What a riot. Hope you get to witness the goings ons (though I also understand wanting to stay far from the maddening crowd!)

I can't tell you how much I would have liked to see the show myself. There were limited free tickets and I missed out. Darn!

I have seen her today and will post some photos tomorrow.
