On Saturday and Sunday the Market Square will play host to a big screen to show tennis and F1.

Rob Purdie, executive director, Northampton town centre BID today told the Chronicle & Echo: "Our Summer Sports Spectacular event on Saturday and Sunday was always planned to celebrate Wimbledon and the Formula 1 and the BID is following strict security advice not to show the football on the big screen in the Market Square.

"There are lots of town centre bars and pubs that will be screening the quarter-final match so people have lots of opportunity to enjoy all sorts of sporting events in the town centre this weekend."

Dozens of places will be showing the match across town and we have picked out 22 of the Chron's favourites to watch all the action.
