Peterborough Positive brings Centre Court action to St John’s Square
June 22, 2023
A big screen live stream of the Wimbledon Finals is coming to the city centre thanks to Peterborough’s
Business Improvement District (BID).
Peterborough Positive is hosting a big screen event to celebrate the Wimbledon Finals on 15 and 16
July, from 12.30pm.
The free-to-attend, family-friendly weekend event will take place in St John’s Square, where people can
see big-screen action of the women’s singles final on Saturday, followed by the men’s clash on the
Tennis fans are encouraged to bring a picnic and local businesses will be selling refreshments from a
selection of pop-up food and drink stalls.
Strawberries and cream, ‘Wimbledon’ milkshakes, pizza slices and a selection of summer drinks will be
available to purchase during the matches.
Pep Cipriano, BID Manager, said: “St John’s Square lends itself to having a big screen event where
shoppers can take the weight off their feet, grab something to drink and relax on the green. For me, the
Wimbledon finals and a picnic go together like strawberries and cream, which will of course be on sale
during the weekend.
“We will also be providing chairs for those who prefer to be properly seated. The singles finals start at
2 pm, but the screen will be on from 12.30pm on both days to catch some of the other finals’ action before
the main event. It won’t be game, set and match afterwards, as I’m hoping this will be the first of an
annual big screen event in the city centre.”
