Appearances will also be made by Plunge Boom, who will present CBeebies gardening favourites Vegetable Nannies, showing children how to sow and grow, 3rdthought’s Invisible People performing one-t-one poetry, jokes and storytelling, and Les Grooms musical and comedy troupe Fanfare Tout Terrain.
Showtime is a free event arranged by the Mayor of London to celebrate the 2012 Games.
