About the event

BT London Live Victoria Park will show the best of the Olympic Games on a giant screen which measures at 60m², plus to ensure you don’t miss a moment of the sporting action there will be a more intimate sports viewing experience in our al-fresco Sports Bar.

Aspiring sports stars of the future and those who just want to have a go will also be able to try their hand at a number of Olympic and Paralympic sports at the BT London Live 'Have A Go Zone'.

The Have A Go Zone will offer a range of professional Olympic and Paralympic sports participation and coaching experiences on a competition-quality 800m² sport court surface. When possible, themed sports days will coincide with the Olympic sporting schedule, so having witnessed a medal winning performances on screen, you can head to the court to emulate performances in sports as diverse as Hockey and Archery.

Enjoy entertainment on the Main Stage from Norman Jay and Friends, Club de Fromage, Courtney Pine, Sean Rowley’s Guilty Pleasures, Slow Club, Summer Camp Tom Vek, Sound of Latin London, and more!

There will be a number of attractions at the park that will have entry fees:

The 55 metre high BT Observation Wheel will highlight Victoria Park’s proximity to the Olympic Park, offering stunning views of both the Olympic stadium and the city’s skyscrapers in one 360° viewing experience. You will be able to pre-book places on the Wheel along with Guranteed Entry Tickets.

One of the big attractions at 2010’s Olympic Winter Games was downtown Vancouver’s zipline. Now, London too can boast its own four-line zipline offering a unique perspective of BT London Live, as riders zip down the 320-metre long steel lines, high above Victoria Park’s trees. You will be able to pre-book places on the zipline along with Guranteed Entry Tickets.

Medal success is be about being ‘Faster, Higher and Stronger’, a number of Victoria Park’s attractions will seek to re-create the experiences of what it’s like to be a medal-winning athlete. From bungee trampolines, where you can do multiple somersaults with ease, to freestyle swimming, where you don’t even need to get wet, thanks to our 64m2 water-zorbing pool.

Finally, want to pick up an official London 2012 souvenir? One of the biggest London 2012 pop up retail stores will be located in Victoria Park.
