The Big Screen is returning to Lyric Square this Summer with Hammersmith BID once again laying on free entertainment.

There will be screenings of sport, films and entertainment for everyone to enjoy including live broadcasts of the tennis at Wimbledon and the Tour de France plus free film nights.

The tennis will be shown from Monday 27 June to Sunday 10 July and lunch can be purchased from local businesses and eaten while you set in the Hammersmith BID deck chairs provided.

High profile matches will be broadcast live into the evenings.

For cycling enthusiasts – or those simply enjoying views of the beautiful French countryside – the Big Screen will be showing the Tour de France as the riders compete on this 21-stage Grand Tour. The Tour de France will be showing on the Big Screen from Monday 11 to
Wednesday 13 July.

Film screenings include Cruella (13 July), the latest Spiderman: No Way Home blockbuster (20 July) and you can singalong to the hit musical Encanto (22 July).

Hammersmith BID is also teaming up with local businesses to provide free wellbeing and fitness sessions on Lyric Square. Stretch and energise your body with Lumi Power Yoga’s restorative classes, get your sweat on with 9Round’s high intensity kickboxing sessions and HIIT classes from Fitness First. Booking open on the Hammersmith BID website.

The popular Picnic in the Square returns Monday to Wednesday, 11 to 13 July and 18 to 20 July with Hammersmith BID providing picnic tables.

The Zero-Emissions Arts Market, the first of its kind in London, returns on Sunday 3 July in partnership with Hammersmith & Fulham Council. The market features local Hammersmith makers and all goods are brought to the market with zero emissions.

Also part of the Summer Festival programming will be a series of musical recitals, delivered to lunchtime audiences in St Paul’s Green, along with more wellbeing events and guided walks. Dates and times to be announced.

BID Director Patricia Bench said, “We are thrilled to welcome back the Hammersmith community to our Summer Festival. After the last two years of uncertainty, we hope the Festival brings much joy and entertainment to Hammersmith, all funded by the businesses of the town centre.
Now in its 15th year, the Summer Festival showcases Hammersmith as a fantastic and vibrant place to work, live and do business.”

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied.
