After Team GB’s tremendous medal haul in Tokyo earlier this month, all eyes are on our Paralympians to see if they can achieve similar success. And sports fans in Hammersmith & Fulham can enjoy the action on the big screen.

For the duration of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic games, the open-air screen in the public plaza in front of 245 Hammersmith Road will be showing all the action.

Where the events aren’t live, the screens will show the highlights in the afternoon – so you can catch up with everything you missed in the early hours.

Deckchairs are provided, so you can get comfy while you watch all the action from Japan, and cheer on the likes of Ellie Simmonds and John Stubbs.

Many fans bring a picnic and drinks to make a day of it. It’s free of charge, and just a two-minute stroll from Hammersmith tube. It all kicks off at 12pm each day, and runs until about 6pm.

The screenings at the plaza are part of Hammersmith’s ‘staycation’ summer festival of fun. And while we’re nearly at the end of the summer, there’s still several more events to come - including Mexicolumbia Festival on Saturday 4 September featuring Latin American music, food and dance. Full details are on the Hammersmith BID website.
