The Woolwich Big Screen and General Gordon Square
Live coverage of major events
The Big Screen in General Gordon Square, Woolwich, is a key focal point for Royal Greenwich as an information and events arena for the community.
While local broadcasts are a priority, the screen also broadcasts live BBC coverage of major events, local and national news, sport, the arts, music and entertainment. The climax was live coverage of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012.
With trees and grass terraces, landscaped General Gordon Square provides a green oasis in the heart of Woolwich.
The Big Screen and built-in bench seating make it an ideal venue to take a break and enjoy outdoor events, news, sport and special screenings.
