London’s Hyde Park is hosting a free football festival this week. Our Major Events Marketing Manager Beckie Crane went along to find out more…

On a beautiful summer afternoon, I visited the much-anticipated Champions Festival, a free festival in Hyde Park celebrating all things UEFA Champions League Final.

With the Men’s Final between Barcelona and Manchester United taking place on Saturday at Wembley Stadium and tickets literally like gold dust, it was my opportunity to grab a little bit of the action.

I had my picture taken with the trophy and only had to queue for about half an hour. Then I visited the Museum of Champions, which took me on a journey through time, detailing all of the most exciting moments in UEFA history.

One of the best things I picked up was a passport from the Adidas area, which was then stamped at each location and entered me into a competition to win tickets to the final.

The festival is a great day out for every football fan. I’m even thinking of heading back there for the legends match on Saturday before the big game. I suggest you do the same.

The free UEFA Champions Festival in Hyde Park runs until Saturday 28 May 2011
