London 2012 Open Weekend (23 - 25 July 2010) supported by BP is the annual countdown celebration to the opening of the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games on the 27 July 2012.
Now in its third year, Open Weekend has already enabled over a million people to take part in sport, arts and cultural events across the length and breadth of the UK. As part of the four year Cultural Olympiad programme, Open Weekend is one of the several projects aimed at adding excitement leading up to the 2012 Games and helping to create a lasting legacy.
This year London 2012 are inviting Local Authorities, sporting and cultural organisations as well as venues across the UK to set a challenge that will open up opportunities for the public to try something new or take an existing interest to the next level.
