Celebrations across the capital
London Live 2012 is the UK’s biggest free celebration of the London 2012 Games, taking place at three of London’s most iconic locations: Hyde Park, Victoria Park and Trafalgar Square.
There will be live coverage of all the medal events on state-of-the-art screens, a variety of entertainment including live music and outdoor arts, plus opportunities to try out Olympic and Paralympic sports.
There are also two special Celebration Concerts in Hyde Park which will coincide with the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Ticket prices and headline acts for these will be announced in early 2012.

Community Live Sites
If you are a local authority interested in establishing a Community Live Site, read our Community Live Sites Celebration Guide
The guide takes the form of a toolkit, and has been developed to answer the enquiries from bodies across the UK wishing to find ways to offer Games-focused activities. It provides guidance and advice on what you will need to address if you are planning a Community Live Site, and how to go about setting one up.
