From 4-11 August the venue will be the official home for showcasing Grenadian culture in London.  

The Olympic House will promote Grenada through cultural activities including art exhibitions, dance and calypso performances.  

The High Commissioner for Grenada HE Ruth Elizabeth Rouse said: "The Grenadian Diaspora is grateful for the support and commitment of Arlington and Camden Council at this time. It is, of course, a pleasure and a delight for us to host our Grenada House in Camden, which is home to many who are of Grenadian descent. We look forward to bringing the flavours of spice and rhythms of Grenada to Camden and we also would hope to further develop these links forged between Grenada and Camden, in the future."  

Jason Pryce-Kennedy, head of Arlington, said: "We are honoured and delighted that the High Commission for Grenada has chosen the Arlington Conference Centre to host Grenada House during the 2012 Olympic Games. Our state of the art conference centre will be the perfect venue for visitors to experience and enjoy the rich Grenadian culture right here in the heart of London."  

Arlington provides high quality accommodation for homeless people and helps provide education, training and job opportunities.
