In the middle of The Malborough Playground in SE1, 50,000 sq feet of concrete has been transformed into Southwark’s own Mini Olympics.
The Pop-up Mini Olympics have been running for a few weeks and have so far gone by as a small, fairly unnoticed little treasure in the middle of a school.
But with 1 week to go before London 2012 rocks into town, the festival is picking up speed. So much so that it might extend its original programme right the way through till September.
The site is covered with sports activities including a sprint track, giant sand pit for beach volleyball, small tennis courts, a boxing ring and a five-a-side football pitch - right in the heart of a central London community.
The programme includes lots of coached events and activities for children. The buzz of this place is now picking up!
