Kidwells Park set to screen all the Olympic action

Sports fans will be able to see all the action from the Olympic Games on a big screen in a Maidenhead park.

Kidwells Park has been designated a 'Community Live Site' and will broadcast everything from handball to the 100m final.

The green space will also host community-led sporting taster sessions, cultural activities and a funfair throughout the 16 days of games.

The coverage will kick off with the opening ceremony on Friday from 7pm to midnight.

The international battle for 302 gold medals begins the following morning, with prospects Helen Glover and Heather Stanning taking to the water first at Eton Dorney in the Women's Pair.

Maidenhead town manager Steph James said: "It will be a great opportunity for residents and visitors to come and cheer on the athletes and hopefully see Team GB get some medals."
