Greenwich Peninsula and Blackheath’s Olympic party plans

with 2 comments

Nederlandse Hospitality in het hartje van de Spelen! If you’ve followed some of the Peninsula Festival stuff on here, this video won’t tell you much that’s new (apart from the discovery of a “subway” line from the peninsula to Woolwich Common). If not, then this should fill in some of the gaps about this summer’s Dutch invasion – concerts, camping, ships and a beach. And £50,000 from Greenwich Council for a “community element”.

Up the road, Lewisham Council’s also forking out for a community party on Blackheath during the Olympics. The programme for The Lewisham Big Screen includes music, film and dancing, and The Mayor’s Quiz Night. You know, I could be up for that last one… hopefully what’s planned for the “community element” on the peninsula (where the stage site is still a storage space for London Marathon portaloos) will be just as good.
