During the London 2012 Paralympic Games we’ll bring you a daily heads-up on what’s happening where, including sporting and cultural events, transport and weather.
Top things to see and do
- The E17 Art Trail launches.
- See how ice cream is made, milk cows and taste stuff at the Ice Cream Festival in Granary Square, Kings Cross (free).
- There’s open air Scottish Dancing at the Bandstand in Kensington Gardens between 2-4pm (free).
- See the Designing 007 exhibition at the Barbican, which ends next week.
- There’s free family fun at the Elephant and the Nun Festival today and Sunday with music, street performance, sports, food and rapping pensioner Ida Barr.
With the weekend, and less work-day footfall, transport should be quieter in central London, but expect crowded carriages and roads in stations to the east, and along the Jubilee Line. Football matches at West Ham, Millwall, Tottenham and Crystal Palace will add to the load across east London. Here’s your daily heat map.
