This Sunday (24th August) GLL are organising a big Olympic celebration in the Crystal Palace stadium, between 12:30pm and 3pm, including lots of children's activities.

As part of this, Crystal Palace will be raising one of the 500 Olympic Handover Flags that have been distributed around the country to mark the end of the Beijing 2008 Olympics and London officially becoming the next Olympic city.

At 2pm the 1948 London Olympic torch (pictured) will be lit at the Crystal Palace Corner, and it will make its way down through the park in time for the flag raising at 2:30pm.

Hope to see you there!
