The mass sing-along and sports day will feature a jazz and samba band accompanied by carnival dancers, roaming artists, giant puppets and Chinese acrobats.

There will be a football shooting competition run by Charlton Athletic football club, a gymnastics display and demonstrations by local sports clubs of Judo, Tae Kwon Do and fencing.

Greenwich's Host Borough Olympic flag will also be revealed.
