London Cultural Olympiad Chairman Talks Up His Shindig

Tony Hall, writing in The Telegraph: “The Cultural Olympiad is a four-year project to encourage people (especially the young) to become involved in arts and culture. It also aims to enable community-led projects to take place that wouldn’t have happened without the spur of the Games. … You may not live in London, sport may or may not be your thing, but this is a way you still get a chance to enjoy the celebrations.”
