For the third year running First Street will be screening Wimbledon live, starting on the 2nd of July and running right through to the finals on 15th of July.
The giant screen will once again be positioned at Tony Wilson Place in the heart of First Street so come along, grab a deckchair and a Pimms and catch all of the tennis action.
For this year’s tournament First Street is pulling out all of the stops and will have lots of fun summer activities to enjoy including giant Jenga, table tennis and other fun games across the estate. It’s the perfect place for tennis fans to cheer on their favourites and hopefully get behind our own Andy Murray who will be fighting his way back from injury to make an appearance this year.
With a host of bars and restaurants offering some of the best outdoor seating areas in the city First Street has proved over recent years that it is the top spot to watch all of the Wimbledon action.
First Street is home to some of the city’s favourite venues including The Gasworks Brewbar, Bunny Jackson’s, Junk Yard Golf, Pizza Express, Indian Tiffin Room, and The Laundrette, to name just a few. Healthy take-out food will be on offer from Kettlebell Kitchen and cultural venue HOME will be open for drinks, food and of course will be showing a full summer programme of films across its cinemas and theatre. The south-facing Ginnside Terrace bar at INNSIDE Manchester is always a popular spot to watch the screen in the sun and enjoy one of hundreds of gins, wines and beers. Masterchef winner Simon Wood will also be serving up a mouthwatering array of summer dishes at his Wood Manchester restaurant.
First Street is just 5 minutes from Manchester Oxford train station, and directly opposite Castlefield/Deansgate Metro link station, but for people who prefer to drive, there is a 700 space QPark, which boasts some of the best priced parking in town.
So, whether you’re just nipping out from work and fancy catching a snippet of the action, or if you and the family are planning a full weekend of fun, First Street promises to offer the best front row seats in the city.
