Godiva Awakes

Believe it or not, I've found a Cultural Olympiad event that might be worth seeing. I suppose even the Arts Council had difficulty finding 12 turkeys to fund. One out of twelve isn't bad for ACE. And here she is: Godiva Awakes, a 19-feet-tall puppet of the fabled lady who rode naked through Coventry as a protest against taxes. She represents the West Midlands at the London 2012 Games. Yesterday, propelled by 50 cyclists on a 50-seat bike called the Cyclopedia, she set out for London. She should have reached Rugby by now. She is due to arrive at Waltham Forest on 5 August (CLICK).
