Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will welcome 3 millionth visitor on Firday


Celebrations will be held to mark the three millionth visitor to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Friday.

As well as family activities there will be a free prize draw and the chance to go up the ArcelorMittal Orbit for just a fiver, normally £15.

Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre will offer free half hour tennis sessions on its outdoor courts – though you will need to bring a racket and book in advance – while the London Lions and their cheerleaders will put on a display in the Copper Box Arena.

Also on offer will be free sports sessions for boccia, althlefit and multi-sports. Head down from 11am to 1pm to get involved.
