Here’s the full events schedule.

Wimbledon – Monday 25June – Sunday 8 July

Summer House is the place to watch all the Wimbledon matches with the perfect view of the BBC big screen.

Whether you’re on your break from work or shopping, or want to set up camp for the afternoon and take advantage of the Summer House Pimms pitchers and delicious deli style bar snacks, Summer House has plenty of space for all.

And if rain stops play? Who cares with the Summer House cocktail list to sample.

For the final weekend come and join in at the Wimbledon Weekender with Summer House table tennis and Wii tournaments, strawberries and cream, and not forgetting the Pimms of course.

Feeling unlucky on Friday 13? Leave it all behind, as Summer House invites you through the looking glass to join Alice in Wonderland and delicious cocktails including; The White Rabbit Martini, Mad as a March Hare, and the Mad Hatter’s Teapot – garnished with edible playing cards and dry ice fire.

Summer House staff will be weirdly and wonderfully dressed as their favourite Alice in Wonderland characters, so feel free to join them. There will be a complimentary shot for those that dress up, and a prize for best costume.

LIVE BROADCAST: Royal Opera House presents: Metamorphosis – Monday 16 July – 7:30pm

Summer House provides the unique opportunity to enjoy one of the Cultural Olympiad’s highlights, but instead of a stuffy theatre in London, enjoy it with a beer and a burger in Manchester’s Exchange Square.

Don’t miss the live stream of this unique collaboration between The Royal Ballet and the National Gallery – a highlight of the London 2012 Festival that brings together new choreography, music, poetry and visual arts.
