The space has been designed with social distancing in mind, with circles outlined on the lawn for groups to occupy safely.

Upcoming films

Next week’s free open-air films include Moana, Cinderella, Finding Nemo and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

Westfield London general manager Jacinta Rowsell said: “We have great food and a fantastic line-up of films, including some Disney favourites.

“With deck chairs and large lawns for lounging, this sunny space will allow visitors to enjoy themselves and have fun with friends and family in a safe environment.”

The outdoor bar is also open Monday-Wednesdays, 4pm-11pm through August, to take advantage of the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ 50 per cent discounts.

Picnic tables are cleaned thoroughly after every use, and all returned deckchairs are disinfected at the end of each day.
