Embrace the Cultural Olympiad

There are now only nine days left of the Cultural Olympiad, or London 2012 Festival, or whatever it's called, and though you might have forgotten all about it there are still plenty of events on, especially if you're into the arts.

Plenty of events are on offer, from sporty-art ones like BT Road to 2012 at the National Portrait Gallery, to filmy ones like Helen Petts: Throw Them Up and Let Them Sing at the Royal Festival Hall, and multi-sensory ones like Maurice Orr's the Screaming Silence of the Wind in the Festival Village at the Southbank Centre. Sure London has great arts all the time but many of these are free, due to the unique way the Olympics is over-funded.

  1. Thanks for posting this - it is a good reminder to have a look at what is going on and catch some of it before it's gone. I was just wondering today what next year's summer in the city will feel like without all these celebrations going on. Hopefully it will encourage more.
