Readers are being given the opportunity to be part of the “greatest show on Earth” thanks to a partnership between the Gazette, the Mayor of London and the body responsible for the Olympic Park’s future.

The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), which will be in charge of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – the name of the site following the London 2012 Games – has teamed up with the Gazette to give away 200 tickets to the Paralympics in a free to enter competition called A Day in the Park.

The chairman of the LLDC, Daniel Moylan, said: “The future Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will belong to Londoners.

“Now, through A Day in the Park, we can give people a chance to see the world-class Olympic venues and their setting before they are transformed into a great new public park due to open in stages from July 2013.

“Whether you want to take the kids swimming at the weekend, enjoy green open spaces to walk the dog or go to a music festival, this will become a park that people will want to keep visiting and finding new things to enjoy.”

A Day in the Park will give people the chance of winning pairs of tickets, or tickets for their family, their community group or even their whole street.

Tickets will be for events taking place at the legacy venues – those which will remain in the park following the Games – including the Olympic Stadium, the Aquatics Centre and the Copper Box. Funding for the ticket giveaway has been provided by G4S, the Games’ security provider.

Ian Horseman Sewell, managing director of G4S major events, said: “We are delighted to support such an important local initiative that will enable thousands of local people to be part of the greatest show on Earth.”

The 200 tickets are a mix of pairs, family packs of four, six or eight, community group packages for 20 people and street packages of 50 tickets.
