South Africa's National Olympic House will be at the Southbank Centre during the Olympic Games.

South Africa House, or Ekhaya (the Zulu word for home), will be based in the Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer. It will feature an exhibition of crafts, daily free music and dance performances and South African food and drinks.

A big screen will be showing highlights from the Games. The house will also stage three large music and comedy concerts, a meet-and-greet with South African athletes, a mini film festival and a fashion show.

The house opens to the public at 10am on Friday 27 July until 12 August. It will then return for the Paralympics.
