The Games themselves will be broadcast on their huge 5m screen: 5pm-12am each of the Fridays, 12pm-12am Saturdays, and 11am-4pm on Sunday 14th (8pm on 21st August). The live music line-up includes bona fida Brazilian beats from DJ Andreas Rauh, authentic Brazilian food and drinks (including the famed Caipirinha cocktail), and much more. All ages are welcome, and entry is free.

Duke Studios co-founder Laura Wellington comments:

“We’re very excited for these weekends at Sheaf Street. We love screening live sports, and – with Brazil hosting the Games – it’s a great excuse to throw in lots of fun extras. We’re a laid-back venue away from the bustle of the city, and everyone’s welcome!”
