Don't miss the final weekend at the open air screen, Victoria Park


Barnet's first ever summer festival, Discover Barnet Presents, launched on Friday 2 July with an open air screen in Victoria Park, Finchley. Despite the unpredictable and slightly soggy weather, the event has brought Barnet residents together to enjoy films and sports on the big screen, which continues to Sunday 11 July.

To kick things off, over one hundred school children from Manorside and Tudor Primary Schools gathered together with local residents on Friday morning to watch Finding Nemo. The Worshipful Mayor of Barnet, Cllr Alison Cornelius, presented the Year 3 and 4 pupils with ‘Litter Critter’ badges as a 'thank you' for taking part in Barnet’s Pick it, Bag it, Bin it! initiative in Victoria Park, and for doing their part to help keep our parks and green spaces clean and tidy for all to enjoy. 

The open air screen in Victoria Park continues throughout the weekend, with a packed line-up of family friendly films, community programming, fitness sessions and Wimbledon matches, and comes to a close when England take on Italy in the Euros Final on Sunday night.
