Horse lovers who didn’t get tickets for the Olympics next year can still enjoy the celebrations in London.

“London Live” will take place in Hyde Park, Victoria Park and Trafalgar Square. And fans will be able to watch outdoor screenings of the 2012 sporting action – including the equestrian events – for free.

The plans for a “massive celebration of sport and entertainment” during London 2012 were announced yesterday (Wednesday 23 November).

It is part of London’s commitment to ensure as many people as possible have a chance to be involved in the Games.

There will be giant screens to watch the sporting action as well as live music, outdoor arts and performance, plus the chance to try out different sports.

And there will be two “Celebration Concerts” in Hyde Park to coincide with the opening ceremony on 27 July and the closing ceremony on 12 August. Ticket prices and headline acts will be announced in early 2012.

“With the eyes of the world on London for the 2012 Games, we are creating a jam-packed programme of exciting events that will show the city at its very best,” said London’s Mayor, Boris Johnson.

“We want to ensure as many people as possible across the capital feel a part of the celebrations. This will allow more people to watch awe inspiring sporting heroes in high definition action for free.”
