Our BT House is now open at BT London Live!
Live music, sporting heroes, Infinity access, a VIP lounge and more at our newly opened BT House at BT London Live, Hyde Park…
After seven years of preparation, the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games are now upon us. And as the official communications services partner of the Games we’re proud to announce the doors to our BT House at BT London Live in Hyde Park are officially open. Welcome!
We’ve spent months planning, and weeks assembling, BT House so you can make the most of your time in Hyde Park. Apart from the Opening and Closing ceremonies access to BT London Live is free throughout the Games.
BT House is based to the left of the main entrance as you walk into the park so you can’t miss us. Pop in to get online with BT Infinity and BT Wi-fi or make a free phone call if you’re a BT customer (excludes 0870 and 0845 numbers). If you’re a BT customer you’re also in for a special treat: you can relax those weary limbs for a while in our exclusive VIP area.
And that’s not all. “BT House will have something for everyone, including music, gaming and TV via BT Vision,” says David James, marketing director for Consumer, BT Retail. “We encourage everyone to come down and meet some of their favourite sporting legends, enjoy fantastic music performances from the BT Vision stage, or chill out and get online in the BT Infinity Lounge.”
So, what are these extra delights we’re offering our visitors?
