National Paralympic Day, Saturday 30th August 2014

PrintTwo years on from the London 2012 games, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will be buzzing once again on Saturday 30th August as it plays host to the celebrations for National Paralympic Day.

The park will be open to visitors free of charge all day, with plenty of exciting activities taking place for all ages.

The line-up will include an impressive mix of street theatre, dance, live music, film, installations and children’s activities, all brought to you by deaf and disabled artists and performers, as part of the Mayor of London’s Liberty Festival 2014.  Visitors will also be able to try their hand at various different disabled and inclusive sports such as wheelchair basketball, inclusive cycling, tennis and boccia.

The iconic structures of the Olympic Park will be opening their doors to spectators once again, as world-class Paralympic athletes take to the water and the pitch for a day of competitions: swimming will take place in the Aquatics Centre, and Boccia, Goalball and Wheelchair Basketball will be on in the Copper Box.

It’s set to be a day of brilliant sport and entertainment for the whole family, showcasing the achievements and work of disabled people.  Who knows – while you’re there you might even meet some of the stars of London 2012!

Entry to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is free.  Tickets for competitions at the Aquatics Centre/Copper Box will cost around £5.
