I received a email today from Heineken Holland House.

They asked me to provide them my passport number to attach to the tickets I bought in early april when they put them on sale.

Use Google Translate to read the text and you will see that it will be a lot more difficult to enter there than in Beijing

Vergeet niet voor 31 mei al je gegevens in te vullen!

Beste Holland Heineken House fan,

Onlangs heb je één of meerdere kaarten gekocht voor het Holland Heineken House London 2012. Leuk dat je onze gast bent tijdens de Zomerspelen!

Graag willen wij je er op wijzen dat je nog 1 week (tot 31 mei a.s.) de tijd hebt om al je gegevens te controleren en compleet te maken. Dat geldt niet alleen voor jezelf, maar voor iedere persoon voor wie jij kaartjes hebt besteld. Dus als je bijvoorbeeld 4 Holland Heineken House kaarten hebt gekocht voor jezelf en 3 andere vrienden, moeten dus de gegevens van alle individuele bezoekers worden ingevuld.

Alle kaarten op je eigen naam zetten of van een fictief persoon kan niet. Hier wordt op gecontroleerd. De tickets staan op naam en zijn niet overdraagbaar. Bij de entree van het Holland Heineken House moet namelijk een geldig identiteitsbewijs plus een kaartje getoond worden.

Om je gegevens te controleren en/of aan te passen, moet je eerst inloggen op onze website met je persoonlijke inloggegevens (e-mailadres en wachtwoord). Deze gegevens heb je ontvangen bij je registratie.

Als alle gegevens compleet zijn, wordt dit in ons systeem verwerkt. Pas daarna worden de kaarten gedrukt en worden deze in juli naar je toegestuurd.

Heb je alles al ingevuld en gecontroleerd? Prima, dan hoef je niks meer te doen!

Om alvast een idee te krijgen hoe het Holland Heineken House eruit gaat zien, kun je hier alvast een virtueel bezoek brengen aan het nationale huis van de sport.

Tot ziens in Alexandra Palace!

Met sportieve groet,
Holland Heineken House London 2012

De Algemene Ticketvoorwaarden van Holland Heineken House London zijn van toepassing.

The Portugal´s National house will be in Lambeth...a kind of little Portugal....

Lambeth will show support for its Portuguese residents by flying the Portuguese national flag

for the duration of the Olympics and Paralympics and hosting visits by Portuguese athletes to

schools, sports clubs, community groups and events. Portugal's best-known athlete is

international footballer Cristiano Ronaldo who will be invited to take part.

Steve Reed, Lambeth Council Leader, said:

“I am proud to show our support for Lambeth's Portuguese community by helping them

support their team. This is a great way to join with Lambeth's single biggest minority

population as they look forward to the London Olympics and Paralympics.

“Lambeth has the biggest population of Portuguese speakers in Europe outside Portugal

itself. This is an exciting opportunity to celebrate their contribution to our borough while also

making sure Lambeth makes the most of the London Olympics and Paralympics.” He added:

"I hope we will be able to support other communities living locally in the same way."

I wonder where they will be based in Lambeth. I'm assuming around the Vauxhall/Stockwell/Brixton area since, cycling through daily, that's where the biggest concentration of Portuguese cafes/restaurants seem to be. And where you hear most noise after football matches if it's gone Portugal's way!

AFRICA VILLAGE :

Africa Village for London Olympics
6/15/2012

(ATR) It will be the biggest single gathering place for Africa at the Olympics: Africa Village for London 2012.

After coming up short in Beijing, plans are being made for 53 NOCs to be represented at Africa Village in London.

The 2,000 square meter village will be located in Kensington Gardens in west London. The village will be made up of two areas, Africa Club and Africa Land.

“We stress that there are two areas, one that is about African hospitality which is about celebrating success and celebrating medals which is all about the 53 countries and the other part is for those countries within Africa who can afford to show off their culture, their tourism and their industry, they will each do this in a different way,” said General Lassana Palenfo, president of the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa.

ANOCA is organizing the project with the help of London based events company The Concerto Group.

“LOCOG has been very helpful with all the planning,” says Palenfo.

Africa Club will be the official, private reception area for ANOCA and African NOCs to welcome African sports leaders, the athletes, and their sponsors.

Africa Land will allow a wide audience to discover a village of stands presenting the cultural and artistic diversity of the African continent through exhibits and a restaurant open to the general public.

“The African contingent that lives in London, England, and not just the English speaking ones but also the French speaking ones are extremely important to our project,” Palenfo says about the support he’s expecting from the sizeable African ex-pat community in London.

According to Palenfo “the main finance is driven by individual African countries who will participate on an exhibition stand in their own right.”

He says 26 countries will be contributing and represented at Africa Land. Missing from the African exhibition will be South Africa and Kenya which will have their own presence at their country’s embassies.

The general says that each country will be bringing their own bit of culture. The plan is to create a large stage in the middle of the village so that each country can show off dance, fashion and music.

Palenfo says Africa Village provides a showcase for the African countries to display diversity of culture, explore tourist opportunities as well as industry opportunities that Africa has to offer.

Palenfo says celebrations will take place each evening for African athletes.

“It’s very important that we celebrate all the success in one place for the first time.”

The general public will be allowed in free of charge from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. The Africa Club will remain open two hours after the games until 12:30 so that if an athlete wins a medal “we can still celebrate them that day and get the newsfeed back out to the African countries,” says Palenfo.

A website for Africa Village www.africa-village.com is now in operation. And helping to increase media attention to the project is Communication director Laurent Bagnis, a veteran of past French Olympic bids.

Kensington Gardens to host London’s biggest ever Russian event: Russia.Sochi.Park

Posted Image


The Russian Olympic Committee and Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee are delighted to reveal their plans today for the London 2012 Olympics. Russia.Sochi.Park in London’s prestigious Kensington Gardens will be the biggest Russian event ever to be held in the UK.

Russia.Sochi.Park comprises Russia.Park and Sochi.Park - two sites that will operate between July 26 and August 12.

Russia.Park will be a summer festival-style fun park, spread over a 10,000 m2 area in Perks Field. It will be packed with Russian culture, cuisine and sport, including cameos by some of Russia’s leading Olympians and performances by folk artists from all the regions of Russia.

Alexander Zhukov, President of the Russian Olympic Committee said:
“The world is fascinated by Russia, and Russia.Sochi.Park offers an opportunity to really experience all the sights, tastes, sounds and people of Russia”.
Sochi.Park will be a winter wonderland in the middle of a London summer, providing a high-tech visitor experience that takes guests through Russia to Sochi, the next Olympic host city via high-tech interactive digital experiences including a 4D chairlift ride up the Krasnodar mountains.


Sochi Park will boast an ice arena on which the biggest ice spectacular ever to be staged outside Russia will be presented: “Sochi - Small Stories of a Big City”, starring 6 Olympic and 18 World Champion ice skaters including llya Averbukh and Tatiana Navka.

Dmitry Chernyshenko, Sochi 2014 President and CEO, said:
“We are delighted to be bringing Sochi to London and offering the world a flavor of what can be expected at the next Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.”


Paul Deighton, CEO of LOCOG, noted:
“I warmly welcome the Russian Olympic Committee to London, and look forward to Russia.Sochi.Park in London this summer.”

The Russian one is a bit pricy.

Just booked the Dutch House, definitely going to do the German House, Casa Brasil, Swiss, Africa, New Zealand and French Houses. Is there no Australian or US House?
