The Netherlands Olympic Committee have given cash-strapped Alexandra Palace a
welcome boon by making the Victorian hilltop landmark of North London
its official hospitality house for the London Olympics. Dubbed 'Holland Heineken House'
thanks to sponsorship from the famous beer brand, the Dutch home will
effectively see the 'People's Palace' transformed into an enormous house
of sports decked out in the trademark orange of the Netherlands
(visitors must be 18 or over and carrying identification). A giant
screen in the main hall will show all the medal ceremonies for Dutch
athletes plus broadcast all the Olympic action live. There will also be
various shops, cafes and restaurants, reception rooms for sponsors,
athlete and media facilities and an information desk - plus the
surrounding park will be incorporated into the festivities. Holland
House will show both the opening and closing ceremonies too - as well as
stay open until the early hours for late-night dancing and
celebrations. It's probably fair to say that of all the NOC venues in
London, Holland House at Alexandra Palace will probably
be one of the most fun - if beer-soaked carnivals are your cup of tea.
Tickets are needed for admission to the house and can be purchased here.

 

About Alexandra Palace

After a shaky start - destroyed by fire 16 days after 'The People's Palace' first opened in 1873 - Alexandra Palace re-opened again two years later becoming the place from where the BBC beamed its first broadcast in 1935. The palace title maybe a little misleading - it's charm being more shabby chic than regal. More about Alexandra Palace
