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, with a rolling programme of 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 provide space to take a break and enjoy outdoor events and screenings.
