We are gearing up for a football double as FA Cup Semi Final weekend comes to Wembley Park on the 23 and 24 April. With both games taking place at Wembley Stadium connected by EE, Wembley Park will be given a temporary makeover as thousands of fans will travel from across the country, filled with the excitement at the thought of potential silverware for their team as the season draws to an end.
On the Saturday, Everton will play either Manchester United or West Ham, and on Sunday, Crystal Palace face Watford, in a bid to return to Wembley on 21 May. Street food vendors and pop-up bars will be set up along Olympic Way, Market Square, Arena Square, Wembley Park Boulevard and the Events Pad, offering fans a tasty variety of hot food as well as widely stocked bars selling hot and cold soft drinks and craft beers and ciders.
London Designer Outlet will also be open as usual on both days on the doorstep of Wembley Stadium, offering visitors up to 70% off RRP in more than 50 shops and with 20 restaurants and coffee shops there is plenty of choice to grab something to eat and drink either before or after the game.
Local residents and visitors to Wembley Park, please be reminded that stadium event day parking costs will be in place on both Saturday and Sunday.
