One thousand free tickets for a festival at the Olympic Park marking the one year anniversary of the spectacular London 2012 opening ceremony are up for grabs.
The Open East festival will include music, food and theatre in a bid to recreate the spirit that captured the hearts and minds of the nation last year.
The giveaway follows a joint partnership between the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) and Tower Hamlets Council.
Dennis Hone, LLDC’s chief executive, said: “We can’t wait to welcome local people back in to the Park and deliver something truly magical for Londoners.
“Open East Festival is one of a fantastic series of events this summer and marks the start of the first phase of opening for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.”
Demand for tickets for the festival, which is taking place on the weekend of July 27-28, is sure to be high.
Eligible applicants must be living in Tower Hamlets and receiving housing benefit.
They can apply for up to four tickets each at www.my.towerhamlets.gov.uk or by calling 020 7364 5020.
Successful applicants will hear back by July 12 – but those who miss out can still buy tickets at www.ticketmaster.co.uk/openeastfestival. Adults can attend for £9.50, children for £6, and under fives can go for free.
