Foster to host special Olympic Opening Ceremony celebration at Tower of London
Friday, 13 July 2012
July 13 - Mark Foster, Britain's four-time record breaking Olympic swimmer and Strictly Come Dancing star, has been named as the host of a special 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony celebration at the iconic Tower of London.
Organised by the House of Nations and taking place on July 27, the event at the London landmark is the place to be to soak up the celebratory vibe for those who cannot attend the actual Ceremony on the same day.
Five-times Olympian Foster (pictured below) will be joined by Sky Sports presenter Charlotte Jackson and both will share their anecdotal experiences of the Olympic Games, while live footage is streamed from the London 2012 Opening Ceremony itself.
Foster carried Team GB's flag at the Opening Ceremony in Beijing four years ago.
Tickets for the evening also entitle guests to an exclusive private tour of the Crown jewels, a champagne and Pimm's reception in the Moat, and a three-course meal, inclusive of drinks.
As well as the Tower of London location, the House of Nations has a further venue for those in London to enjoy during the Games.
Located directly opposite King's Cross St Pancras station and just seven minutes from Stratford on the Javelin train, this venue will act as a central hub throughout London 2012, celebrating the coming together of over 200 nations.
Sporting action will be broadcast throughout the day before the location transforms into an exclusive club at night and the Olympic Torch will be at both the Tower of London and King's Cross House of Nations venues, with visitors being given the chance to have their photo taken with this historic memento.
