The ROlympics, our cultural programme during the Olympic season, is the gift Romania is making to the people of London. Curated and produced by the Romanian Cultural Institute (ICR) and set up in collaboration with numerous Romanian and British partners, it consists of 17 projects in film, theatre, visual arts, and literature that are inspired by the richness of London's identity and that aspire to create a lasting legacy.

After a row of theatre, literature, dance and film events earlier on, join us for the second part of ROlympics, when we will unveil eight sculptures & public installations. Hopefully, the weather will clear up and you will have plenty of sunny days to enjoy them in the epicentres of the Olympic London!
