HELMDON Sports and Social Club are holding an Olympics opening ceremony carnival on Friday, July 27, with everyone invited.

The carnival will be a great opportunity for local people to get involved in the excitement of the Olympics with it being held in England.

Starting at 6pm on Wappenham Road, the carnival will have a live screening of the opening ceremony as well as live music from the Autumn Buskers, a BBQ, bouncy castle and plenty more.

There will also be a Kids Olympics with all children entering receiving a gold commemorative medal.

And as a special treat, the carnival will have a real Olympic torch at the event that people can have their photos taken with.
