Euros: Where to watch England's European Championship games on big screens in Kent

Anyone up for a month of watching international football on a big screen surrounded by fans?

No we're not mad, and you haven't returned in a time machine to 2018; barring any last minute lockdowns, football fans will be treated to a feast of entertainment when the UEFA European Championship kicks off next week.

The tournament starts on Friday, June 11 when Turkey take on Italy; with England's first game kicking off at 2pm on Sunday, June 13 against the team that dumped them out of the the 2018 World Cup, Croatia.

Ever optimistic England fans are hopeful Gareth Southgate's squad can again progress into the latter stages of the tournament, but of course we all know it won't be that simple - and the best way to get through the stress is to embed yourself in the midst of a drunk screaming mob.

But where best to do that? Here are some of the top venues with big screens to enjoy the triumph and tragedy of international football.

Source Bar

Location: 4-6 Rose Yard, Maidstone

Boasts a huge 200" outdoor LED screen, said to be "bigger than a Luton truck", with an additional 165" screen. Tables of two, four and six can be booked for £5 a person.

The bar is also offering special deals on beer and an outdoor BBQ. Photo ID required.
