Earl and Countess Spencer and 60 children from nearby Brington and Harlestone Primary Schools will greet the flame in front of Althorp House.

In all 550 schoolchildren from ten local primary schools are taking part in the Althorp School Games, an event inspired by the Olympic Games. Each school will represent a different country.
