London 2012 Olympic Closing CeremonyThe grand finale of the London 2012 Games takes place at the Olympic Stadium on 12 August 2012 and includes a handover to the next host city, Rio. For the elaborate closing ceremony at Beijing 2008, media estimates put the global television audience at anything from one to four billion people - so it's safe to say all eyes will be on London as the 30th Olympiad comes to an end. Leading choreographer and creative director Kim Gavin, the inspirational force behind many Take That shows and performances, has been appointed Artistic Director for the Closing Ceremony, which traditionally features a march of the athletes, the hoisting of the flags, speeches and the poignant extinguishing of the Olympic Flame - as well as one final cultural spectacle, plus a look ahead at the 2016 Games and the next host city, Rio. If the handover at Beijing 2008 is anything to go by - it included a red London bus and an appearance by David Beckham - then the global audience will be treated with a mini Rio Carnival and a cameo by Pele.

 

About Olympic Stadium

The centre-point of the London 2012 Games, the £537 million Olympic Stadium, becomes a new permanent sports venue after the Games. Changes include reducing the seating capacity from 80,000 to 60,000 by removing the top layer of the stadium, a temporary lightweight steel and concrete upper tier. More about Olympic Stadium
