What's on London's Big Screens?

With its interactive games and ability to relay live events, London's Big Screens are much more than just a big telly.

Find out how you can get involved and even get yourself on them!

What's this all about?

Think of it as an outdoor venue rather than a big screen. From live opera performances and concerts, to interactive games, events and videos from local bands, the screen offers something for you.

It interacts with live events in Walthamstow Town Square in Waltham Forest and Gordon General Square in Woolwich and showcases community projects, film makers and artists from across London.

The big screen connects London to the other screen sites in the UK as well as screens across the rest of the world!!

It's been made possible by a partnership between the BBC, Waltham Forest and Greenwich Council and London 2012.

How can I get my event on the Big Screen?

The screen is free to use. The Screen Manager decides what goes on the screen so get in touch if you've got something to show. This might be an interactive application, photographic slide show, film, music video, community information, event you'd like to tell other people about… you get the idea. If in doubt ask!

You could be a school or college, local filmmaker, festival wishing to tour content, community or arts organisation to name a few. We also welcome pitches for artistic ideas which use our technology in a creative way and engage passers by.

Remember the screen is more than just a big notice board so if you're planning an event in either Walthamstow Town Square in Waltham Forest and/or Gordon General Square in Woolwich try to think creatively about how you could involve the screen. If you're stuck for ideas - get in touch and we'll talk it over.

There's no deadline for submissions and the screen is a hungry beast so we're always on the lookout for content to feed it!
