Game On history and successes
Nottingham celebrated the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games through its Game On Programme of sport, arts and cultural events and activities.
Working in close partnership with a number of key partners, clubs and community groups Nottingham City Council bought the London 2012 Games to Nottingham, by giving local communities the opportunity to get involved and feel part of the Olympic experience.
The overall aim was to ensure the Games had a positive impact on Nottingham residents and helped build a lasting legacy of participation in sport, leisure and culture across the city.
Some of the years' highlights were:
- the huge programme of FREE and great value events and activities delivered, across the city, by Nottingham City Council and it's partners to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
