Venue Information

About Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre

Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre is a flexible 1,000-2,000 seat capacity theatre, located within the former Fountain Studios, which was best known for being the venue of live televised shows including The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and Pop Idol.

The new theatre is in the heart of Wembley Park, an area which is fast becoming one of London’s most exciting destinations. As a new cultural hub for London, the 85 acre redevelopment has 27 affordable artist studios, 7,000 new homes, London Designer Outlet, new retail districts and offices, as well as the largest Boxpark to date, Boxpark Wembley and the SSE Arena, Wembley.

Working in collaboration with well-known and emerging production companies and artists to stage world-class entertainment within a flexible space unmatched by other London theatres, this state-of-the-art cultural destination also has a big sociable bar space and its own restaurant Studio 5ive, offering a modern British menu with simple, bold dishes employing great quality produce in a relaxed, modern atmosphere. 

"Troubadour's installation theatres may become the most significant new trend in theatre building in my lifetime: a versatile way to create large and flexible new performance spaces all over London, so producers are no longer dependent on paying extortionate West End rents"

Mark Shenton, The Stage (Jan 2019)
