After 11 million people tuned in to the Paralympics opening ceremony, the closing ceremony is predicted to bring in an impressive 750 million world-wide viewers! The event named ‘Festival Of Flame’ will see artistic director Kim Gavin work magic and without a doubt, organise a truly beautiful finale.
The overall success of the Games will be celebrated by a one-off, live performance by multi-award winning Coldplay. The band has been working very closely with designers to play an amazing gig alongside a cast of 2,000! The event will see the 2012 Paralympians take to the stage for the last time. The Paralympic cauldron will be extinguished, signalling the end of the Paralympics and also the end of London’s time as host city. As they have officially been announced as the next host city, Rio de Janeiro has a lot to live up to in 2016.
The world should expect a magnificent display of music, dancing, celebration and remarkable staging to mark the end of the Paralympics 2012.
