Thousands of people are expected at the O2 on the Greenwich Peninsula on Sunday, August 24, between 1 and 4pm to mark Greenwich becoming a host borough for the 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games.

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.
