Alongside the big screen sporting action, visitors to the Team GB Fanzone at King’s Cross in London will also enjoy/endure (delete as apropriate) live DJ sets, the chance to try their hand at Olympic-themed activities, and a programme of onstage entertainment, including Q&As and medal celebrations with Team GB’s returning athletes.

Team GB says that they aim to secure further sites closer to the date.

Each Fanzone will open on Friday 26th July in time for the Opening Ceremony, running until the day of the Closing Ceremony on Sunday 11th August.

In London three fan zones have been announced:

  • Battersea Power Station

Outside London:

  • Cabot Circus, Bristol
  • Liverpool ONE
  • Bullring, Birmingham
  • Spinningfields, Manchester

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
