The Record 2012

In the build up to London 2012 and the Cultural Olympiad, many sporting and cultural activities are taking place across the UK, from celebrations at national and regional venues to local school and community projects.

We are bringing together a picture of the activities happening now, which will create an historical legacy. We have arranged this activity by seven main themes. The themes are divided into smaller groups of activity. Click on the tabs at the top of the page to browse between the themes.

All of these activities will generate valuable records and The National Archives provides support to help find these records a suitable home.

We welcome organisations to get involved - become a part of a national legacy by helping to collect and preserve untold histories.
