Boris drops into Victoria Park (eventually)

Boris stuck on the Zipwire in full view of In the Zone

You may have noticed some press coverage this week of the Mayor of London stuck on a Zip Wire. You may not have noticed that this happened just next to our In the Zone Touring Exhibition in Victoria Park. Our team from At-Bristol Science Centre were delighted to watch Boris madly waving his Union Jacks as he set off down the wire and provided a running commentary as he got held up a few metres from the end of the line.

In the Zone is at the BT London Live event in Victoria Park, Hackney all throughout the Olympic Games period. This will be the final opportunity to see the exhibition in London this summer. In addition to the In the Zone exhibition, visitors will be able to see the best of the Olympic Games on big screens,  have a go at Olympic sports, enjoy live music and performance, and get views of the Olympic Park from the zip line and big wheel.


BT London Live is a free event and you can guarantee entry by reserving tickets at
