What's on and where

The BP Big Screens are back for 2017. With three evenings of fantastic ballet and opera they will undoubtedly be the best free events of the summer. Make sure you put the dates in your diary and get along to one of our many venues including some exciting new places. Bring your friends, bring a picnic and get there early for pre-performance screenings packed with exclusive content 30 minutes before curtain up.

If you are attending a BP Big Screen, please arrive as early as possible. There will be increased security at Trafalgar Square and other venues, which may cause short delays. Your patience is greatly appreciated, and here’s to three great BP Big Screens.
