The Big Party

On 24 August 2008 in London there is to be a free party for 40,000 people in front of Buckingham Palace, and a larger event in Beijing.

The party and Beijing event is to mark the moment when London officially takes over from Beijing as Olympic host city. The handover will form part of the Beijing closing ceremony.

There will be three dance groups involved in London's segment, and a London bus will enter the Beijing arena carrying David Beckham and X-Factor winner Leona Lewis.

Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, will be in Beijing where he will receive the Olympic flag.

The one bright spot in the 2012 Games is the fact that London now has a mayor who might actually be able to trim the costs of this juggernaut.
