Scots have been asked to ring bells loudly across the country for three minutes from 8 am on Jul 27 to welcome the 205 competing nations on the first day of the 2012 Olympics. The All the Bells appeal is part of Scotland's contribution to the Cultural Olympiad, held throughout Britain between Jun 21 and Sep 9, the last day of the Paralympic Games. Some 50 cultural events, which bring together leading names from the worlds of art, film and music, will round out Scotland's contribution.

Highlights include an outdoor concert in the shadow of Stirling Castle and a musical celebration of Scottish sporting heroes in Glasgow. More than 300,000 people are set to take part in the events, with other highlights including a concert set to a film about deep space from NASA's archive at Glasgow's Riverside Museum.

Some 8000 people are expected for the Stirling Castle concert on Jun 21, Midsummer's Day. Gustavo Dudamel, the conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra will perform. (WRITTEN Nov 2011)
