Shoreditch. A 2,000-capacity events space will host a multitude of events throughout the year, contributing to Wembley Park’s vibrant experiential scene.

Great consideration has been given to grassroots arts and culture in planning the buildings and their uses throughout the scheme. A new 1,000 – 2,000 capacity theatre, Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, will soon follow Boxpark, opening in early 2019. Run by award-winning Troubadour Theatres, it will provide affordable space for emerging productions alongside world-renowned entertainment, to deliver a programme of over

200 shows per year. This is expected to draw between 200,000 and 360,000 visitors a year to the area.

Against a background of music venues in decline across London, we wanted to provide a place at Wembley Park where the night- time economy can thrive, and grassroots talent can be celebrated. A 16,000 sq ft food, drink and late-night entertainment space will be a landmark venue within the scheme. Our ambition is for this attraction to provide accessible live music to local workers and residents, as well as visitors who can now benefit from the Night Tube. A new rooftop bar, over-looking the iconic Stadium, will add a further dimension to the area’s post-work and weekend scene.

From the architecture and the streetscape layout – such as the division into four distinct districts, each with its own character – great foresight has been given, to embrace

social spaces and community experience. No more so is this evident than through our seasonal events programme. This Christmas, Wembley Park will launch Xmasbox, the area’s first curated season of winter events, which builds on the success of its recent Summer of Play festival. Starting with the free Light Up the Night fireworks spectacle and lights festival on 4th November, which is expected to welcome 30,000 spectators, Wembley Park will come alive with activity taking over its wide boulevards, shopping precincts and public squares as well as venues across the site. A trail of luminous installations, including the immersive lights-meet-glass labyrinth Crystal Maze and bespoke site-wide illuminations produced by Oxford Street-favourite Field & Lawn, will light up the area throughout the festive period. Championing emerging talent, independent film-maker nights, theatre performance, workshops and author talks will also take place. Meanwhile at new purpose-built community space, The Yellow, visitors of all ages can get creative, with activities ranging from Creative Writing Workshops to art exhibitions and Open Mic Nights.

Building homes for 20,000 people is one thing. Building a community that adds to the heritage and reputation of a world-class destination Is inspiring. Adding a theatre, Boxpark, art studios and music venue to an extensive experiential events programme is set to create a memorable entertainment zone to London’s premier new neighbourhood.
