The screen will be full of interesting content all day and night, and the canopy will put on a show that lights up the entire square for those visiting in the evening.

Take a look at the playspace and dip your toes in the water feature, enjoy the public art, relax on the lawn or head straight for the Market Hall or Horseshoe Lane to grab a coffee and a bite to eat.

Food Options:
Head down for lunch, stay for dinner – the food and beverage teams will be serving up a smorgasbord of eats late into the evening. A number of outlets serve coffee and breakfast in the morning, with the rest of the Market Hall outlets opening from 11am – 10pm on Friday and Saturday, and until 8pm on Sunday. Some outlets continue to serve drinks and eats later into the evening.
