The London 2012 Open Weekend is your opportunity to showcase your activity, inspire, engage and be part of a UK-wide celebration of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

In 2008, over 400 organisers took part in the London 2012 Open Weekend. The events ranged from workshops with leading professionals to mass participation events in public spaces to community festivals.

London 2012 Open Weekend theme

The theme for this year’s weekend is ‘Open up’ - open up opportunities for the public to participate in events across culture, sport, environment and learning.
We are inviting organisations and individuals to do something ‘like never before’ and strive for personal best.

Open up your mind
Open up your organisation
Be inspired by London 2012
