In 2018, Big Screen and Big Beach have split into separate events because local residents felt this would be more enjoyable. The Big Screen film festival is hosted by The Parade at the dedicated events space, and the Big Beach will also be held at this location. Movies will be screened between 6 and 22 July, including family films and classic cinema. The Big Screen will also show Wimbledon matches. The Parade will be transformed for two weeks during the Big Beach event. Sand will be brought in to cover the events space, which will welcome families during the day and just adults and teens on an evening. You can sign up for exercise classes, and youngsters can also join
up for activity sessions and fun sports competitions.
The Wat’s On programme is available during the summer holidays. Children aged 5 to 15 can take part. Play sessions are free and children can attend as few or as many sessions as they like (subject to availability). Turn up early to avoid disappointment because these play sessions will be extremely popular with the children of Watford!
