    And the fact somehow I ended up doing Scottish dancing much of Monday afternoon due to the influx of kilted men in my loca (er and the wine).
    And you live? Considers moving... no kilted men anywhere near me! I love a ceilidh...

    I think it starts about 8 so I expect it to be after 11pm by the time it finishes.

    Found this:

    The ceremony, which begins at 9pm on July 27 (with the pre-show starting at 20.12), is expected to last well over three hours, but will need to end by 12.30am to allow spectators to get public transport home.

    The Closing Ceremony still as this against it on the schedule page of the London 2012 website

    Closing Ceremony to take place in the evening. Exact time to be announced.
    The spectator page says that gates open for the Opening Ceremony at 5pm and for the Closing at 5.30pm. A friend who has tickets for the Opening says that the guide that came with her tickets says they should be seated by 7.30pm.

    Argh I wish I was in 51 now, they look delicious!

    Apparently there was a mother of a cast performer on 5 Live around 7pm this evening, but the BBC server is down (!) so I can't find it, will have a look later

    Was thinking of anyone rehearsing in that hideous horizontal rain at the weekend, hope it was all ok!

    Thanks Laura! Sure it will be good! Have warned my team that I may be bouncing off the walls later at work.

    And celebrating 50 days to go with one of the Olympic 50p designs - the words sum up TSR quite well too!

    Hello everyone,

    I haven't posted on here before, but I've been lurking for a while. You guys have been keeping me sane when I was waiting to hear back from my audition! It took forever to get an answer out of them but...

    I'm in the Para opening ceremony. Section 98-whirl. Is anyone else in that section?

    Thanks for sharing all your news etc over the past few months.

    Congrats Roomby on your Cast Role I'm sure there are a handful of Section 98-whirl's on here but I'm sure Flakeydom would have further details in relation to how many exactly is in your Segment - due to the ever increasing spreadsheet.

    Have a great time -I expect you are buzzing!:bee2: but at least you will be in the dry at 3 Mills. Think of us poor mortals at the weekend battling through the floods again! It is certainly the survival of the fittest with the freezing cold/searing heat/ floods. Will we ever have a normal day I wonder? Can't wait to start rehearsing at the Stadium!

    If we drum at all - I expect we'll be in our schizophrenic alter ego roles...though that might be loud as well...
