Eat Out To Help Out: Wembley Park restaurants announce participation & cinema gears up for reopening


From the 3rd to the 31st August, visitors to Wembley Park, North West London’s world-famous cultural neighbourhood, will be able to not only experience affordable dine-in food and drink options at Eat Out To Help Out restaurants, but will also have the opportunity to re-experience the wonderful world of cinema, as Cineworld at London Designer Outlet reopens its screens and BOXPARK Wembley launches a new four-week film club.

As part of the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme, Wembley Park diners will be able to make the most of enticing discounts at a great choice of dining concepts on offer across the neighbourhood. In addition to discounts on delicious food, culture-starved visitors can once again enjoy the favourite pastime duo of dinner and movie this August, as Wembley Park welcomes BOXPARK’s new four-week Film Club; a programme of independent, diverse and classic movies that will run from Monday to Wednesday every week throughout August. Keeping the little ones entertained throughout the summer holidays, the street food destination will screen a family film during the day, followed by a film for grown-ups every evening, from 6pm. For £2 for the family ticket, and just £3 for the evening film session, visitors can enjoy a brilliant and affordable film and food experience.

From 31st July, London Designer Outlet is pleased to announce the reopening of its state-of-the-art Cineworld complex. The nine-screen cinema, complete with 4DX technology, is underway with its final preparations for a safe reopening of the latest screenings from Hollywood, Bollywood and all destinations in between. On their return, guests can enjoy new blockbuster releases like Russell Crowe’s new Thriller Unhinged and Eva Green’s space drama Proxima, or family favourites like the Star Wars classic, The Empire Strikes Back, and Jurassic Park in 4DX. New safety measures in place will include staggered film times, updated seating maps and social distancing in place across all areas of the cinema.

Phil Clapp, CEO of UK Cinema Association, says: “We know that cinema-going is the UK’s number one most popular cultural sector, and something that many people have hugely missed during the lockdown. For many communities, cinemas are a key hub for social activity, bringing together people of all ages and from all backgrounds, to enjoy the unique big-screen experience. So, the reopening of any cinema, let alone one as popular as Cineworld at London Designer Outlet, is a cause for celebration and a further sign of our return to those things which make life more enjoyable and fulfilling.”

In addition to the reopening of cinema, the month of August at Wembley Park will also see the reopening of leisure experiences. BOXPARK Wembley will be offering exclusive leisure deals on gaming, if three or more friends sign-up for an exhilarating experience at either Bad Axe, the world’s biggest urban axe throwing club or Meetspace VR, the UK’s largest virtual reality arcade.

BOXPARK Wembley will offer 50 per cent off meals, up to £10 per person, for customers dining-in, in addition to going one step further, by offering customers 50 per cent off on all alcoholic drinks from its central bars, from Monday to Wednesday.

Food aficionados can take their pick from 15 participating food traders at BOXPARK Wembley, all of which serve the freshest flavours from around the world. From Mama Jacq’s and Smokey Boys to Spice Shack and Zia Lucia, BOXPARK fans will be able to get their hands-on discounted meals from its most popular street food restaurants throughout August.

Wembley Park’s independent restaurants, including London’s largest Bread Ahead bakery and deli, and much-loved Italian eatery, Pasta Remoli, will offer a mouth-watering 50 per cent off food and soft drinks as part of the four-week scheme. Complementary to the discounted dining experience, the neighbourhood continues to offer al fresco dining that provide unrivalled views of the National Stadium – perfect for summer evenings throughout August.

Visitors can head to London Designer Outlet on Wembley Park Boulevard to find family-friendly dining options offering 50 per cent discount on food and soft drinks, from popular restaurants, including Nando’s, TGI Fridays, Frankie & Benny’s, Zizzi and Big Moe’s. Guests can also find great on-the-go cafés, treats and fresh food options offering half price dishes, including at Treatz, Wrapchic and Opa.

Wembley Park has a wide choice of family-friendly restaurants, eateries, cafés and food vendors in one destination; for quick stops, light snacks and confectionery. Plus, essential household groceries. The different dining concepts and a wide selection of cuisines reflect Brent’s diverse culinary culture and respond to a growing appetite among the capital’s population for more and better places to eat out.

Nine hand sanitiser stations have been installed across the Wembley Park neighbourhood to help maintain hygiene standards. Clear, friendly signage around Wembley Park instruct visitors on how best to navigate the wider area, including marked out lanes to help people enjoy Wembley Park’s outside space with ease.

Wembley Park has made social distancing for visitors as easy as possible through enhancements to the public spaces. Outdoor seating has more than doubled in recent months with new picnic tables and new benches, all of which facilitates social distancing, while allowing visitors to move freely.

In addition, Wembley Park is offering three hours’ free parking at both Yellow and Red Car Park. After that, parking starts at as little as £1 per hour, without the need to book.
