The Belfast Big Screen
The ‘Big Screen’ was installed in the grounds of City Hall before the London 2012 Olympics. This was part of a wider initiative to place outdoor screens in cities across the UK in time for the event.
Following the Olympics, the screen was retained in order to broadcast a mixture of sporting events, BBC news and promotional videos for initiatives supported by the council.
As the screen has now reached the end of its operational life, it has been permanently switched off. It will be removed early in 2017.
