Mayor of London Presents: A Summer Like No Other

This summer, the Mayor of London presents A Summer Like No Other, a fantastic series of free outdoor events to celebrate the London 2012 Games.

London will host a huge outdoor arts festival to celebrate the London 2012 Games, with exciting free events taking place across the city.

"We will welcome the world with thrilling events in every corner of the capital to create a summer like no other," said Mayor of London Boris Johnson.

Local high streets, parks and outdoor spaces around London will come alive with amazing free performances by UK and international artists.

Expect the unexpected as hidden gems in various London boroughs are transformed with performances, soundscapes and more.

Look out for extraordinary pop-up events in Central London, which will surprise passers-by as leading artists and performers take to the streets.

Some of London's best young musicians will be chosen to busk on the London Underground and in spaces around London, culminating in a live final in the summer.

See the Olympic Flame as it passes through London with seven days of Torch Relays on the way to the Olympic Stadium for the start of the Games.

Watch the triumphant Team GB and Paralympics GB athletes parade through the centre of London as they say thank you to Great Britain and celebrate competing in the Games.

London will get a makeover this summer with London 2012 bunting, banners and more, bringing the colour of the Games to the city's streets.

The Olympic rings and Paralympic agitos will appear on London icons such as Tower Bridge, and there'll be special projections onto the capital's famous buildings.

Bridges along London's river Thames will light up with a dazzling display of colour during the evenings of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
