Paralympic Screenings in the UK 29th August 2012 8.30pm
It's the Paralympics Opening Ceremony tonight and we're really excited about it! The event is all about celebrating the inclusive nature of the Paralympics and its theme is 'Enlightenment', focusing on all we can achieve as human beings. The ceremony has been carefully curated by two Artistic Directors, Bradley Hemmings and Jenny Sealey and will feature over 3,000 volunteers and a fly past from British charity ‘Aerobility’. It's going to be big!!
There are lots of screenings tonight in London so if you're in town, go soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the start of London's remarkable Paralympics! BBC Big Screens are also showing the Paralympics Opening Ceremony around the UK (see below).
Remember to bring blankets and something warms to wear! Happy Paralympics!
