It was a night to remember for one young musician who took part in the Olympic opening ceremony on Friday.
Blair King, of Astor Close in Maidenhead, was one of thousands of drummers beating the rhythm for the industrial revolution-themed segment of the curtain-raiser which was choreographed by film director Danny Boyle.
After months of rehearsals the 18-year-old said it had all gone to plan and he had been 'well prepared' for the big event.
"I really enjoyed it, it was quite an experience," he added.
The former Oldfield Primary school pupil added that one of the most enjoyable parts of the night was after the ceremony had finished when he got to enjoy an after-party and look around the stadium.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
