Make-it-to-5pm Mondays – The Big Screen

20110707-110509.jpgp

July brought Belfast some sunny, hot weather – how kind! I took full advantage of it and watched the Wimbledon Men’s Final outside (tennis, for people who live in caves)

A big screen has been installed in the grounds of Belfast’s City Hall, allowing a few hundred people to get sun burned and watch the tennis together! The BBC have installed ‘Big Screens’ throughout the UK for the 2012 Olympics but they will also show various other events. Pity it wasn’t up and running for the Royal Wedding!

Whoever thought of this idea should get a big pat on the back! A great way to create true shared space and start to build community. Not sure it’ll work for the XFactor final in December – that would be dedication!

Looking forward to watching the women’s shot put final on it next year ;)
