Victoria Park Olympic big screen and festival site: free access for all Hackney residents

A big screen to view the 2012 Games is up and running in Victoria Park until the end of the Olympics. Everyone is invited to turn up at the site, where no ticket is needed.

Along with the big screens, the site is packed with a variety of live music acts, a 55m high Observation Wheel giving views of the Olympic Park, have-a-go sports, bungee trampolining, and Zip Lines and Zorbing.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson said: “With giant screens to watch all the latest sporting action, fantastic live music and a range of have-a-go sports to try out yourselves, the BT London live site at Victoria Park is one of the best places for all the family to enjoy this incredible summer like no other - and best of all it is completely free.

“So don’t miss out, get down there today.”

Upcoming performances on the main stage over the next couple of weeks include Club De Fromage, Alexandra Burke, Alyssa Reid, Jazzie B and Friends, plus Soul II Soul and Brand New Heavies.
