Canary Wharf Hits an Ace on Wood Wharf Summer Screen
As the second week of tennis heats up, Canary Wharf Group plc welcomes a dockside Wimbledon summer screen to Wood Wharf, from 30 June to 6 July.
A week of free screenings will include all the live Wimbledon action, mirroring the scenes on Murray Mount, alongside fascinating archive London footage, news, current affairs and entertainment. Visitors can enjoy after work drinks at the new upcycled CNTNR Bar, try their hand at table tennis, enjoy the free, live action on the giant screen or all the highs and lows of the Action For Kids Beach Volleyball Championships from some of the best seats in the house.
Wood Wharf’s newest bar CNTNR is a waterfront pop-up made of up-cycled materials and housed within a 20ft disused shipping container. Furnished with help from resort-side swimwear style experts and Jubilee Place store Orlebar Brown, the bar is the perfect destination for a refreshing Pimms while viewing the Wimbledon action.
The Summer Screen at Wood Wharf is the perfect way to entertain the family and enter into the spirit of tennis-mania that grips the nation this time of year.
Monday 30 June – Sunday 6 July 2014
