The final week of Hammersmith's annual Summer Festival features a picnic in Lyric Square and an opportunity to see the Royal Opera House's production of La bohème beamed lived onto the big screen.

Grab a deckchair, supplied by HammersmithLondon, and relax with a picnic on Tuesday July 15 and Wednesday July 16 between noon and 3pm.



On Tuesday July 15 from 7.15pm till 10.15pm, BP Big Screens presents a free, outdoor relay direct from the Royal Opera House of its production of La bohème.

One freezing Christmas Eve, a struggling poet meets a beautiful, fragile young woman who will change his life forever… Let yourself be carried away by the emotional power of The Royal Opera’s exquisite and realistic production of La bohème. Immerse yourselves in the colourful artists’ quarter in 19th-century Paris, where every moment is precious, and paying the rent is the last thing on anyone’s mind.

you’ve never been to an opera before, this is the ideal place to start.  Puccini’s magical, heart-tugging music, performed by a superb cast, is guaranteed to captivate you – you may even find you know some of the opera’s wonderful melodies.
