Details of the she show, which begins with the athletes' parade, were unveiled at City Hall.

PSNI Deputy Chief Constable, Judith Gillespie, said: "The Opening Ceremony is the key official event during the Games and sets the tone for the following 10 days of competition.

We're delighted too that many of the schools and clubs that have been involved in the WPFG's school's legacy programme will also be taking part in the ceremony

"It promises to be an impressive start to what is going to be the 'friendliest' Games ever and we are particularly pleased that like the majority of the 56 sports featured that this event is also open to the public with tickets being available through Ticketmaster."

Tickets are available from Thursday on a first-come first-served basis.

While they are free an administration fee of £2.50 will be applied to each ticket.
