Join us in the exciting world of Mini
Olympics, where fun and sportsmanship come together!

The Mini Olympics is an annual fun-filled event that brings children together to engage in friendly and non-competitive sports. Similar to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Mini Olympics features a variety of activities, including Opening and Closing ceremonies, participation of celebrities, athletics, boccia, boxercise, American football and much more!

Details

During the 3 days of the event, over 2500 primary school children participate in sports and diverse activities at the Grantham Football Stadium. Children have a real taste of how the Olympics Games work and enjoy the day representing a country that could participate in the Olympics Games.

The games start with an opening ceremony with a parade from all the schools bringing the banners they made to celebrate the country they represent, followed by sporting celebrities.

During the day, children experience diverse sports and enjoy the day representing a country that could participate in the Olympics Games.

The games conclude with a spectacular mass dance with Royal Opera House dancers!
