On Saturday 6 August 2022, Westlife will perform in front of tens of thousands of eager fans in Wembley Park – London’s most exciting new neighbourhood – with a rollercoaster of a show that delivers all the hits. Ticketholders have been waiting patiently for the past year, after Covid restrictions meant that the original August 2021 date could not go ahead. Their wait is about to pay off, with Westlife planning their biggest ever show for their Wembley Stadium appearance.
Doors open at 16.30 with singer-songwriter James Morrison and girl group All Saints supporting as special guests.
Those wanting the best out of Wembley Park when they come to see Westlife (and special guests) will be well served by the guide below.
How to get to Wembley Park?
Wembley Park makes everything easy when it comes to getting there – as you might expect from a destination that has been hosting events since 1894 including the recent UEFA Women’s EURO football final in which the Lionesses made history by defeating Germany and “bringing it home”.
Just 12 minutes from Central London, Wembley Park is served by three London Underground lines (Jubilee, Metropolitan and Bakerloo), mainline rail (Chiltern Railways and Southern Railways) and the London Overground, meaning that visitors can travel however suits them best. Secure car parking for 3,000 cars is also available on-site; with 39 electric vehicle chargers located within Pink Parking. Pre-booking is advisable on event days.
For residents of Quintain Living – the award-winning management company overseeing the rental of more than 3,250 apartments in Wembley Park – travel arrangements aren’t necessary. Those who have tickets can simply walk to the stadium from their homes perfectly situated around it. Others can soak up the atmosphere from their balconies, podium gardens or roof terraces, or pop to the neighbouring BOXPARK Wembley to enjoy the official Westlife Fanpark from 11am (18+ ID required after 8pm) with amazing DJs, a live band performing a range of pop hits, glitter and face painting stations, giveaways and much more!
What to do before the concert?
There’s plenty to do in Wembley Park, so be sure to arrive long before the concert. Whether it’s shopping for the perfect outfit at London Designer Outlet where all your favourite brands including Calvin Klein, Guess, Kurt Geiger, Superdry, Levi’s, Sketchers and the new Nike Unite store, are available with up to 70% off RRP or taking part in more adrenalin-fuelled activities such as axe throwing at Bad Axe, ward off the zombie apocalypse at meetspaceVR or score a hole in one at Pop Golf.
Families looking to enjoy a spot of culture while visiting Wembley Park to see Westlife have plenty to do. The Wembley Park art trail turns the leafy boulevards of this London neighbourhood into a public art gallery. The free art trail includes the Bobby Moore Bridge Tile Mural, Square of Fame, Wembley Park’s answer to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, iconic “graffiti spaghetti” style pieces from Mr Doodle (whose artwork has been valued at over USD 1 million) and the interactive Shadow Wall by internationally renowned artist and designer Jason Bruges.
For Westlife fans, Wembley Park’s Square of Fame is also a must-visit attraction. Located outside the OVO Arena Wembley, the Square of Fame features bronze plaques imprinted with the handprints of countless musical icons, including those of Westlife’s talented musicians. In addition to seeing the handprints of their idols, Westlife fans can also discover handprints from Madonna, Kylie, Dolly Parton, Dame Shirley Bassey, George Michael, Lionel Richie, Bryan Adams, Status Quo and Alice Cooper.
Dining in Wembley Park
There are plenty of choices for eating and drinking at Wembley Park. From the gourmet street food on offer from 22 vendors at BOXPARK Wembley to edible works of dessert art at Haute Dolci, irresistible carb-feasts at Bread Ahead, modern Italian flavours at Pasta Remoli and a home-from-home experience at the brand new Estadio Lounge. London Designer Outlet is also home to family favourites, including Nando’s, Las Iguanas, TGI Friday’s and Wagamama.
