Pictures below from a sneaky preview visit to the site for tomorrow's 'Visa London 2012 Party' on the Mall, which is happening right in front of Queenie's Front Room. Feverish activity seems to be going on to get the stage, the set and back-of-site operations built in time.

If you got your mitts on one of the 40,000 tickets through the public ballot for this, then enjoy the celebrations to mark the handover from Beijing to London - you'll get to see Michael Phelps as well as our very own heroes from Team GB that created some amazing sporting memories over the last fortnight. You'll also see London's segment of the Beijing closing ceremony broadcast and - oh yes - there'll be some musical acts doing their stuff on stage like Sophie Ellis-Bex and Heather Small. If you didn't get a ticket, then catch everything on the BBC from about 1pm tomorrow, with the handover moment from about 2pm.

Live screens are going up outside the party in St James's Park, where a London 2012 roadshow will be on the Mall as well so you can get a flavour of what the capital will be like in four years' time. As previously reported, you can also catch the action at screens across London, plus there are hundreds of other smaller sporty/arty events going on, so find one near you. Go along, take some pictures, send us any good ones and tell us how you feel about what we'll all be up to in 1,434 days' time. Excited? Scared? The question for tomorrow is - will queenie be home tomorrow to have a peek around her net curtains, dancing quietly away with a glass of pinot grigio in hand? We reckon she'd have more of a soft spot for Will Young than McFly, but what do we know...
