BT London Live Victoria ParkBT London Live Victoria Park will provide coverage of the London Olympic Games via two giant screens, with the largest being 70m sq. Every Olympic medal competed for at the Games will be broadcast on the large screens, giving Londoners the opportunity to come together and enjoy the once in a lifetime event in a festival-like atmosphere. Plus, the al-fresco Sports Café provides a more intimate viewing experience. The Victoria Park segment of the capital-wide London Live series will also feature a Sports Park, offering a range of professional Olympic and Paralympic sports participation. And at the end of the day, there will be live music performances on the main stage, with two free performances nightly. The highlight will perhaps be the 40m high observation wheel, offering outstanding views of the Olympic Park and of the rest of London. And, inspired by a successful part of the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, there will also be a double zipline, offering riders the chance to zip down the two high-tension steel lines above Victoria Park's trees. All BT London Live dates except the Opening Celebration Concert and Closing Celebration Concert in Hyde Park are free and you can simply turn up on the day, as long as they're not full. You can also book free Guaranteed Entry Tickets in advance for Hyde Park and Victoria Park which gives you access to the area as long as you arrive before 2pm. There are full details at www.btlondonlive.com, including how to
register for tickets and information regarding the two other London Live
events in Hyde Park and Trafalgar Square.

Music Highlights:
Saturday 28 July - DJ Norman Jay
Wednesday 1 Augst - Courtney Pine
Thursday 2 August - Alexandra Burke

About Victoria Park

One of London's best kept secrets, Victoria Park is a fantastic place to spend an afternoon. The city's first public park, it was opened in the East End in 1845 after a local MP presented Queen Victoria with a petition of 30,000 signatures. More about Victoria Park
