Wimbledon Goes East
No time to queue for Centre Court? Tired of trekking to Murray’s mount? This summer Old Spitlfields Market are making sure you can enjoy all of the delights of the tennis at the heart of the city as Wimbledon Goes East.
Taking place on Friday July 14th, Wimbledon Goes East will see the historic marketplace transformed into a Grand Slam-tastic tennis-lovers haven. They’ll have a big double-sided screen showing all the action live, dedicated free deckchairs, tennis training and games, as well as the obligatory strawberries and cream, Pimms and Prosecco.
While those serious about their sport can enjoy the quality picture and sound over in Wimbledon Goes East’s very own centre court, more casual viewers can watch on the other side of the screen in the Wimblefun zone, where they’ll find tennis inspired challenges, entertainment and live music from Hoxton Radio.
Running from 1pm-9pm this special one off night market will feature refreshments from The Prosecco Box, the Pimms bus and Old Spitalfield’s market’s delicious array of street food vendors including Bleecker Burger, Cafe Caribbean, Turkish Wrap House and Poppies Fish and Chips.
Hoxton Radio will be broadcasting live from 6pm – 9pm with live performances from Chess Galea, I Am Aquitaine plus The Tall Poppies on the centre court stage for your viewing and listening enjoyment.
