This month the greatest show on Earth is coming to Britain - no, not the Justin Bieber tour, but the Olympic Games!

Billions around the world will tune in for the opening ceremony at the Olympic Stadium on Friday 27 July.

Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle is in charge. He's giving the show a countryside theme!

Across the country, loads of people will be celebrating the start of the biggest sporting event in UK history.

The opening ceremony will have real sheep and cows!

Kids there are planning and organising a massive event for their town - their preparations will be shown on CBBC in the week leading up to it.
