6) The Big Screen @ Brighton Marina- Brighton, East Sussex

It has become a yearly tradition for the lawns at Brighton Marina to be transformed into a wonderful outdoor cinema where you can catch everything from the World Cup & Wimbledon to film screenings. Arrive early to nab yourself a deckchair and a good spot. Be warned, Tennnis matches will have priority screening over football!


7) ITV Fever Pitch- Manchester

As much as we'd love to strole down the real Copacabana the journey to Manchester's Quay Street version is a more realistic venture. After shipping in 450 tonnes of sand, a beach bar, a 40 Sq-metre screen and hosting their own beach soccer is there a better way to bring the beautiful game alive other than journeying to Russia yourself!
