Special Olympics Opening Ceremony today

Iconic singer Tony Hadley will be headlining at the Opening Ceremony for Special Olympics GB’s National Games this evening at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane Stadium.

The Opening Ceremony show will be hosted by three big name stars – Downton Abbey’s Jim Carter, F1 broadcaster Suzi Perry and football pundit Chris Kamara.

Additional entertainment on the night will be provided by the Rationale Theatre Company and will see local talented Yorkshire based artists including  ‘Under the Stars’, ‘Team Power Stilts’, ‘Aim To Dance’, ‘Kansaze African Dancers’, ‘Chinese Lions Dance’, ‘Team Katalyst’ Dance & Gymnasts and the ‘ParaCheer’ Cheerleaders.

Also at Special Olympics GB’s Opening Ceremony will be James Toseland – former double World Superbikes Champion turned rock music artist – who  will be performing ‘We’ll Stop at Nothing’, the 2017 Official Special Olympics National Summer Games Anthem.  The song has been released with all profits going to the charity to support athletes with learning disability – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLSSdYB3IEE&feature=youtu.be

Turnstiles open at 3.30pm. The Athletes parade begins at 5pm, followed by the Opening Ceremony Show. The Show concludes at 9pm

Due to the high demand from Athletes and families, unfortunately there are no wheelchair accessible seats left available at the Opening Ceremony.

Ticket prices for the Opening Ceremony at Bramall Lane start from as little as £5. The public can access tickets to the Opening Ceremony at https://www.sufc.co.uk/special-olympics
