Wimbledon at Old Spitalfields Market

Tennis fans are spoilt for choice this year in the capital. SEEN hears that on July 14th, to celebrate one of the most exciting matches in tennis, the Men’s Semi-Finals at Wimbledon, Old Spitalfields Market is dedicating its July night market to creating a ‘Wimbledon away from Wimbledon’.

July 14th will see the iconic market transformed into the ultimate viewing space. Designed with its own Murray Mound – artificial grass to create a real sense of Wimbledon, surrounded by classic white picket fencing with deck chairs placed for the ultimate view on the big screen, it’s the perfect place to watch the match of the day.

Mirroring a true Wimbledon experience, guests will also be able to purchase strawberries & cream, Pimms, Champagne and Cucumber Sandwiches. How very British…
