Where to watch to Olympic opening ceremony this Friday

Don’t have a ticket? No, nor us. But if you want to soak up the Olympic atmosphere here are a few places around Shoreditch and the East End showing the opening ceremony on big screens from 7pm Friday.

The Water Poet

A bit of a Shoreditch institution, this pub has inside and outside space which is welcome during these sweltering times.

Victoria Park

This is a ticketed but free event and the park will be screening all major events including the opening ceremony this Friday. For details see their official website

Ale-ympic Crawl in Newington Green
