12 July 2018

Brent Council is to erect a 17 square metre big screen in King Edward VII Park in Wembley for a public screening of Sunday's World Cup final between France and Croatia.


Residents from across the borough and visitors from further afield are invited to come and watch the tournament's finale.


Council staff will be on hand to make sure this family-friendly event runs smoothly and will work closely with partners including the police to deliver a safe and enjoyable afternoon.


The screening is free and tickets are not required.


The Council is ensuring that toilet facilities and water are made available as part of the event.


Coverage of the final will start from 3pm.


Cllr Muhammed Butt, Brent Council Leader, said:


"Obviously we were all hoping for England to finish the job, but it just wasn't to be. Nevertheless, this is a proudly global borough and we are keen to carry on celebrating this global event. We're putting up a big screen in King Edward VII Park and hope that residents can come along and enjoy the final match of what has been an outstanding tournament."
