Where will you be watching the opening ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics? Me and my boy, The Grenade we will be watching at Camp Bestival 2012.
On the evening of Friday 27th July, they'll be screening the opening ceremony of the Olympics in the Big Top! So I'll be able to celebrate this historic occasion and toast to the success of the athletes, whilst not missing out on a minute of fun at Camp Bestival. Wayhey, that's the best of both worlds!
I am particularly looking forward to the Camp Bestival twists to the proceedings, with alternative commentaries, surprise guests, party antics and a whole bunch of other unexpected moments of silliness. Load me up with streamers, blowers, flags and balloons and I'll be in the spirit of the Camp Bestival stadium of colourful carnage!
The favourite professional wallies, Lost & Found, will be leading the silly Sportsday action. There's activities taking place at both the Blue Coats tent and a specially prepared track, the much revered Judy Cater & Co will be on hand to ensure silly play is maintained at all times and standing by will also be their multinational team of wonky coaches.
All contestants will begin the games in an oath swearing ceremony, and then the fun will begin! Track events will include, No Sense of Direction Running, Animal Relay, starting with chickens v frogs, Chariots of Fire SlowMo Race and Remote Control Racing - beware of the rewind, fast forward, pause and I can't wait to see an action replay.
Field events will include, 'Jaffa'-lin Throwing and Gurny Shot Put, think water balloons and your best strains and gurns! Other events outside of the realms of track and field will include, Synchronised Paddling in our very Olympic pool and Weightlifting, can you 'snatch' and 'clean and jerk' our assortment of household appliances to be this year's Camp Bestival Weightlifting champion? There will also be Leider - Hose-Down, Goodminton like badminton but gooder and without the rackets, Hammer-time and if you're in danger of a very sloppy Sunday why don't you slop and slalom down for a Ski Sunday Special?
Tickets are really flying now so if you didn't get tickets for London 2012 you can join in all the Olympian fun you're going to have to be quick! And don't forget there's 100s of free things for kids to do, comedy, art, glorious food galore and fun around every corner, so make sure you check www.campbestival.net and our Facebook and Twitter for all the up to the minute news about our fifth Camp Bestival!
We can't wait!!! This is the kind of sport I may have a chance in. Where will you be watching the opening ceremony? If you can't be there why not make it a ceremony to remember somewhere else.
