BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2012
with the BBC Concert Orchestra
Sunday 16 December 2012, 7.35pm
ExCel London, One Western Gateway Royal Victoria Dock, London E16 1XL
Sue Barker, Gary Lineker and Clare Balding will host the 2012 review, with musical interludes provided by the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Martin Koch.
Staged at London's 15,000 capacity ExCeL, the event on Sunday 16 December will be the biggest in the programme's 59-year history.
This year's ceremony will play host to a star-studded line-up of medal winners and sporting heroes who made 2012 so memorable.
With an increased shortlist of 12, in recognition of the unprecedented success of UK sportsmen and women this year, the race for the coveted title will be one of the most hotly contested in the show's history.
How to get there
- The Jubilee Line is recommended as the quickest route to ExCeL London and the ICC. Alight at Canning Town and change onto a Beckton-bound DLR train, for the quick 2-stop journey to Custom House for ExCeL (West) or Prince Regent for ExCeL (East) and ICC London.
- The Emirates Air Line (Cable Car) connecting ExCeL London and the O2 opened summer 2012. It's now possible to travel by Thames Clipper between central London and the O2 and then by Cable Car across the Thames to ExCeL London.
- When driving to ExCeL London follow signs for Royal Docks, City Airport and ExCeL. There is easy access from the M25, M11, A406 and A13. For a map showing major local roads. For Sat Nav purposes, use postcode E16 1DR.
- ExCeL has been purposely designed and built to allow unrestricted access to disabled visitors. We aim to provide full access to all the facilities within the venue and recognise that disabled visitors may require extra equipment, facilities and assistance both routinely and in an emergency. ExCeL London welcomes assistance dogs with visually and/or hearing-impaired visitors.
