The closing of the Paralympics balanced Danny Boyle’s spectacular ‘green and pleasant land’ opening by telling the story of the people who use the land, an alternative society of artists, poets, writers, makers, creatives and travellers. The ‘Festival of the Flame’ show focussed on the open, generous, egalitarian nature of festivals to celebrate all individuals, in particular the inspiring experiences of the paralympians.
