London Sites To Televise Olympics
Thursday, 24 November 2011
Three London sites will be transformed for next year's Olympics.
Giant screens will be constructed in Hyde Park, Victoria Park and Trafalgar Square to enable thousands of people to watch the Olympics and also enjoy some first-class entertainment free of charge.
London Mayor Boris Johnson, The Royal Parks, the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and international event promoters Live Nation came up with idea for London Live, which will ensure that thousands of people who missed out on Olympic tickets can still be a part of the biggest sporting event to be held in the UK since the 1966 World Cup.
All eyes will be on London next summer and with thousands of tourists flying in to experience the spectacle of the Olympics, short-stay apartments in London could be in hot demand, so it might be a good idea to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Giant screens displaying all the action from the Olympic and Paralympic Games are not the only reason to swing by these sites next summer, for they will also play host to a number of live concerts, art events and sporting activities. In short, there is something for everyone to try at these Live London events.
Live Nation will also host two concerts in Hyde Park to coincide with the opening and closing ceremonies on July 27 and August 12 respectively. A number of other free public events and cultural ceremonies will be staged across London during the Games.
Mr Johnson said: 'With its unbeatable locations London Live will be a thrilling highlight in a summer of highlights, allowing even more people to watch awe inspiring sporting heroes in high definition action for free, and other fantastic attractions for Londoners and visitors alike.'
The London Live website, londonlive.uk.com, has been officially launched and details of the events will be published in the not-too-distant future.
