Sunday’s Closing Ceremony

The Olympic Games come to an end with a spectacular Closing Ceremony starting at 9pm and finishing around 11.30pm.  

The ceremony “A Symphony of British Music” features 4,100 performers, including school children from Hackney, and music from the London Symphony Orchestra and the best of new and established British talent. It will also include the handover to Rio, host of the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Unless you have tickets to the ceremony, the best way to see it is on television, either at home or at Hackney’s only managed live site at Haggerston Park.

We expect the Big Screen at Haggerston to be popular on the closing night, so arrive early to secure a place. Once capacity in the Park is reached, no more people be allowed into the site.
