Please add your own thoughts too.
On my own journey across three nations I found a prodigious young jazz trumpeter, a magical meeting of great Olympians – old and new, Irish boxers turned artists, four thousand Scottish pipers, the birth of a new celebration of story telling, a festival of dance the like of which Cumbria has never seen before, and a vast chain of concrete dominos that weaved its way through the five host boroughs around the Olympic Park.
In some ways you could say that the Open Weekend has simply held up a mirror to the remarkable diversity of culture and sport that the UK has on offer – and yet the over-riding impression that so many of us have reported is the way in which performers, audiences and producers have genuinely opened themselves and their organisations up in the spirit of London 2012 and 'everyone's Games'.
The Open Weekend will be back in a year's time as part of the celebrations to mark two years to go (and we'll confirm the exact dates very soon), but for now we'd like to record profound thanks to our commercial partners, BP, for their excellent support for the Open Weekend, and to each and every event organiser for helping to share the Olympic and Paralympic message of London 2012.
Thanks all. Now I think I might finally have a bit of a sleep...sweet dreams are, however, guaranteed.
