Norden Farm to screen Olympic opening ceremony

The opening ceremony of the Olympic Games is set to be screened at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts in Maidenhead on Friday.

Entry to the event in the Long Barn at the Altwood Road venue is free and open to everyone.

Maidonian torchbearer Angela Cassidy will also be making an appearance to speak about her experience with the famous flame.

A podium will be in place so people can have photos taken with the torch.

Entitled 'Isles of Wonder', the opening ceremony is the brainchild of Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle and will be broadcast live to about four billion people from 9pm.

It will feature a parade of athletes, the hoisting of the Olympic flag, the lighting of the cauldron and a cast of 15,000 performers.

Kidwells Park in Maidenhead has been designated a 'Community Live Site' and will be screening all the action from the Games.
