The Open East Festival, marking the anniversary of London 2012 and signalling the start of the phased reopening of the Olympic Park, will take place on 27th and 28th July. The Barbican, Create London and the London Legacy Development Corporation have announced the line-up for the festival, which as well as music will include theatre, food and family fun. The newly-named Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will open its gates to thousands, and will host pop-up performances throughout the park, designed to encourage visitors to explore the newly developed areas. Visitors can enjoy 70 stalls of London’s best street food and try beers from local breweries. There will be a number of Gamesrelated performances to remind audiences of the great summer of sport and culture, including performers from the Olympics Opening Ceremony.
