The F.A. Cup Final – Big Screen


Following the success of Watford Football Club reaching the FA Cup final, a live match screening for residents has been organised in Cassiobury Park for Saturday 18 May 2019.

The screening will start at 4pm for the build up to the match which starts at 5pm and has an estimated finish time of 6.45pm. If the game goes to extra time (and possibly penalties) then the finish time will be between 7.15pm-7.30pm.  The screens will be switched off after the medal ceremony.

Feel free to bring a picnic (please don’t forget to put your litter in a bin or take it home with you and, no barbecues are permitted anywhere in the park).


To prevent roads in the Cassiobury Triangle (Gade Avenue, Shepherds Road and Cassiobury Park Avenue) from being obstructed by large numbers of people trying to park nearby, temporary closures for the roads in this area have been arranged for the day of the event.

Barriers will be put in place at Gade Avenue, Shepherds Road and Cassiobury Park Avenue where they join Rickmansworth Road. Stewards will be on hand in this area to direct people travelling by car to town centre car parks and to help people travelling by public transport with directions and information. (If you are a resident on one of these streets the stewards will give you access to come and go throughout the day)

Please note that the Cassiobury car park (on Gade Avenue) will be closed except for event vehicles and disabled parking.

The closures will be in place from 7am to 7pm on Saturday 18 May.  The parking controls in the Triangle will still be operational and will be enforced on the day by the Council’s Civil Enforcement officers.
