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.
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.
