West Norwood celebrates the London 2012 Olympics

Do you remem­ber where you were four years ago when prob­ably the most jaw-drop­pingly incred­ible open­ing cere­mony took place in Beijing? Prob­ably the same place as you were when Andy Mur­ray was los­ing at Wimble­don this year… watch­ing on the telly.

We’re invit­ing you to enjoy undoubtedly the most excit­ing thing to hap­pen in Lon­don this year with friends. Watch the Olympic Open­ing Cere­mony at St Luke’s Church, West Nor­wood. The event will be broad­cast live on a giant screen on Fri­day 27th July and coin­cid­ent­ally, we’re hav­ing a party.

With more than a mil­lion extra people arriv­ing in Lon­don, the eyes of the world will on our cap­it­al. Here in West Nor­wood, how­ever, we’ll be cel­eb­rat­ing in local style with the fam­ily and neigh­bours, out­side St Luke’s Church.

As with the usual great Sunday Feast vibe, from 7pm there’ll a bar, kids activ­it­ies and simply deli­cious food stalls from early even­ing, tea and cof­fee in the church and an under­cov­er area in case of a shower.

With ten thou­sand volun­teers and almost thirty thou­sand props and cos­tumes Danny Boyle is sure to deliv­er a spec­tacle. So grab a bottle and a pic­nic blanket and come along. The kids will be kept busy while we all enjoy the mag­ni­fi­cent spectacle/damp squib.

The clev­er organ­isers of that sports event have sched­uled the cov­er­age to start at 20:12 (8.12pm), but get there early and ensure a good spot.
