Thanks to the BBC, many of the major cities throughout the UK will be showing coverage of The Games on big screen TVs starting tonight with the Opening Ceremony. City centres will be decked out with outdoor beanbags, and other comfortable seating so you will be able to enjoy all the excitement of tonight’s Opening Ceremony and the next fortnight’s event whilst enjoying a bean bag picnic with your friends and family.
The BBC has 22 sites in towns and cities throughout the UK where this summers events will be screened. Set up to promote local and national events, and animate city centres, so far this year people have been able to enjoy Wimbledon, Euro 2012 and performances from the Royal Ballet all from the comfort of an outdoor beanbag, and all for free.
This year, the use of outdoor beanbags at live events has dramatically increased, with organisers realising the benefits of the beanbag over other forms of seating, beanbags win hands down for comfort, versatility, affordability and let’s face it, they look a lot cooler than a plastic chair!
