Mike is looking forward to the Opening of the London 2012 Olympic Games that is being marked by the Opening Ceremony at the Olympic Stadium which will showcase to the world – over 1 billion viewers – the best of British culture and society.
The London 2012 Olympic Games will be officially opened on Friday 27th July at 21:00. Following its 70 day route across the country, the Olympic Torch will have been carried over 8,000 miles by around 8,000 torch bearers, through over 1,000 towns, cities and villages, before finally arriving at the Olympic Park for the Opening Ceremony.
Commenting, Mike said: “After years of meticulous planning, and a fantastic torch relay which ran right through Hove following my campaign on the matter, I am really looking forward to watching the opening ceremony with my family. Hosting the Olympics is a wonderful opportunity for our country and we should be proud to showcase our national heritage which will be shown across the world.”
