So, just in time for the Opening Ceremony of the event we’re not supposed to mention the sun has finally made a bit of an appearance! We have been completely engrossed in the efforts of athletes from all countries and are completely enjoying the whole show.

In the spirit of the games, here are five things we didn’t know about the games:

1. At the Ancient Games athletes competed in the nude. That’s right, not a stitch on them. We think this may lead to commentator confusion were the rule re-instated.

2. Pigeon Shooting was on the programme in Paris in 1900. We think LOCOG missed a trick not having it on the programme for London.

3. Other discontinued events we’d like to see back include the tandem cycling, the duelling pistol, underwater swimming, and our favourite, the much-missed tug-of-war.

4. This years medals contain an image of The River Thames on the reverse. Nike, goddess of victory, is on the front, as she always is.

5. Sadly, no-one from The Vatican has ever bothered to enter the event. We think they would stand a good chance of winning.

We’re rather excited by The Mr Men Live Party Roadshow which is currently touring the country – why not throw a party to celebrate! It’s a great range, and each plate has a different Mr Man (or Little Miss).

Spiderman is also hanging out here at Party Ark, he’s looking better than ever in this new party range – we also have stretchable spider webs and banners to decorate your party room. Personally, we think spiders are best left in the bottom of the bath but can see the appeal of an all-over latex body-suit.

What do sumo wrestlers throw into the ring prior to a match? Just one of the questions you might be challenged with by the Sporting Trivia cards. If all else fails, get behind the games by wearing one of our sporting hero masks!

Today marks the 193rd birthday of Elias Howe, the inventor of the sewing machine. He appears to have been extremely hairy. The French seem to have been particularly impressed: Napoleon III gave him a gold medal. Not content with one invention, he also invented the zip but never bothered marketing it, because he’d already become a multi-millionaire. For some unfathomable reason, the Beatles’ film Help! is dedicated to Elias.

Our 10% off Summer Voucher is still valid – you’ll need code E445. Any queries, questions, problems or ideas: we’re here during office hours on 01572 748 609.
