    The Olympics & all other games around the world!!
  1. The Blue material is to simulate the ocean...it starts on the upper tiers and then the lower seating as a special song is played.... hope that doesnt spoil things too much Also am very very excited now for the Ceremony...gonna be amazing...I hope everyone enjoys the show...and can't wait for the Torch Bearer and Cauldron to end years of speculation!!
  2. i think this is the ferris wheel in Victoria Park which sits behind the stadium....they have a load of stuff there!!
  3. No, there were no speeches however they will have to done at that end as I dont think they will want to stand on the man made hill, also the south end stage is close a lot closer to where the IOC family will be sitting
  4. The Platform is sitting in front of the Light Triangle, and there are no lights on it, all the other light boxes are around it, so it really just sits there waiting, I am sure if the cauldron was there you could see the flame from outside and most definatly from the Athletes Village as the North end is nearer to it.
  5. I would like to share my Theory of how the cauldron is lit and where it will sit. I have just returned from the dress rehersal for the opening ceremony and I have to say it is amazing!! Point 1 - However, there was one part of the stage that has been left out, on recent pictures of the stadium the centre stage has the river thames on it, during the rehersals this has never been used or seen. Point 2 - There is a platform installed above the main stage at the North End of the Stadium, it sits empty and looks wide enough and big enough for an object (maybe a cauldron) it wasn't there a few we
  6. Has anyone noticed the ring shape dead centre on the stadium roof? I was there yesterday and all 4 screens are up, this is something new and is located above the main stage, above the giant screens....could this be the home of the couldron?
  7. A...MAZ...ING...wow soooooooooooooooooo can't wait now!!!
  8. Hey so the 'Look' is starting to go up in Central London too...got these snaps earlier Oxford Street Oxford Street - There are a few more a long the street, will look good when they are all up, but guess they only just started putting them up! New Bond Street - Looks very Impressive!!
  9. Do you mean this trailer? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-18647587
  10. There is little detail for sinage areound the park
  11. Here are the rings at the Aquatic Centre!!
  12. Just one thing about the wrap...not sure if I posted this before, but the wrap is also carrying information for the spectators as to find where are seated in the stadium, the pic was taken at the test event on 5th May. and
  13. Hehehe that was amazing too, and Madness really did get the crowd going, I have a new found respect for Sir Paul and really loved his set. I have never felt so patriotic and everyone around was so friendly and chatty, so proud to be British, even choked up and shed a tear singing the national anthem...Now Bring on the Games!!
  14. Just wanted to share this picture of Bucking Palace with the Projected image of the Union Jack on it...I just Love it!!
  15. I also am back from the Diamond Jubilee Concert...I was lucky enough to be in the Seating jut off to the left of the middle of the centre stage. I have to say if the public are this patriotic at the games and show the sense of national pride that was on show then London 2012 is gonna be amazing. During the Picnic I noticed a lot of people wearing Team GB clothing, and almost every single person had a Union Flag...This is definately the start of a great summer, that will stamp GREAT into Great Britain. Sooooooooooooo amazing...everyone was buzzing about the Jubilee and then chatting about how
