The University of Birmingham outdoor screen

After consulting with our campus community (including students, staff and visitors) on the University’s new Green Heart, we’re delighted to introduce this new outdoor entertainment space, providing a place for our community to come together socially around major events on and off campus.

The screen will be used throughout the year to host to a number of outdoor performances and cinema nights. We will also be showcasing the work of the University at Open Days, live streaming events such as graduations and showing major sporting events.

Outdoor screen

You will find the screen positioned at the heart of campus in front of the Law building (R1 on campus map), providing viewing from the lawn outside Bratby bar.

Please note: we are unable to show content from any channel not broadcast on Terrestrial Freeview and we cannot record programmes to view at a later date. 

Content supplied by University of Birmingham departments, the Guild of Students or Student Societies, will be shown before and after scheduled programmes each day.

The screen will be muted at most times of the day. However, sound will be used during live streaming, degree congregations and during outdoor performances or cinema nights. Audio levels will be monitored.
