Event: -
Victoria Park in east London is joining in the Olympic fun, with live screenings of events from the sporting extravaganza among a series of attractions laid on as part of BT's London Live Olympic celebrations.


Three giant screens in the park will be showing a vast range of sports events from the Games, including live coverage of the gymnastics, football, swimming, beach volleyball, badminton, road cycling, and more.

If you're more of a doer than a watcher, be sure to visit the Have-A-Go Sports Zone, where you can try your hand at a number of Olympic and Paralympic sports, including volleyball, tennis and wheelchair basketball.

Coaches will be on hand too, offering some choice advice to help you improve your skills.

The park is also putting on some fabulous live music events, with the likes of Alexandra Burke, Soul II Soul, Courtney Pine, Sean Rowley's Guilty Pleasures, and Sound of Latin London taking to the stage to entertain the crowds.


A programme of cultural experiences is being laid on too check out the acrobatic splendour of Theatre Tol from July 27th to August 1st, and be sure to visit the PlayPoint Puzzle where you'll find some giant jigsaw puzzles created by artist Miruna Amza and architect Liviu Zagan.


While most of the entertainment in Victoria Park will be free over the 17 days, there will also be a number of paid attractions. These include the 55-metre high BT Observation Wheel (you'll be able to see the Olympic Stadium from the top), a 320-metre long zipline, bungee trampolines and a water-zorbing pool.

You can pre-book your go on these rides and attractions by purchasing a Guaranteed Entry Ticket to the park - click here to find out more.
