 Olympics Closing Party in Victoria Park

As the world’s greatest sporting event draws to a close, the BT London Live prepares for a spectacular closing party in Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets, Sunday 12 August. Victoria Park is one of three iconic sites transformed for BT London Live, the others being Hyde Park (Olympic Games) and Trafalgar Square (Paralympic Games).

All the live sporting action are on giant state-of–the-art screens, but if the games themselves aren’t enough excitement there are plenty of extra thrills from the BT Observation Wheel. With great views of the Olympic Park, to have-a-go sports including a badminton court,  bungee trampolining, Zip Lines (yes that’s the one Boris got stuck on!) and Zorbing especially for kids. The Sun Pub (The Sun Newspaper is the official press partner of the events) offers shelter from the rain or sun, which ever occurs and another couple of full bars, a live music stage and various street food stalls offer lots for grown ups.

For families with children looking to try out new sports or just a giant playground, Londoners wanting to catch up with the games or some live music acts (Soul 11 Soul, Alexandra Bourke and Norman Jay have already played Victoria Park and Blur will perform in Hyde Park on Sunday) these free events really are hard to beat..a bit like Usain Bolt then!
