Boxpark Wembley
« on: February 20, 2020, 09:48:59 AM »
I'll be heading for Boxpark for the final and have ordered the free tickets that do not guarantee entry but I'm sure I'll be there at a time that this wouldn't be a problem.  I didn't go here for the play off final so I just wanted to know how busy it got and if it is worth paying the £10 for guaranteed entry?

I liked it, good atmos, no bellends and good sing song and food/beer though it’s London Prices. Ie expensive! However there was an email from Boxpark yesterday saying due to demand for tickets they’d recommend buying the guaranteed entry ticket. I already had as I liked the set up though I’m sure it wouldn’t be to everyone’s taste.

I popped in to have a look on my walk up Wembley way and it seemed ok. I wouldn't pay the tenner though.

We were having this discussion most of the day amongst our group. I ended up emailing Wembley Box Park. Basically no concessions, so yea tenner for kids as well. Plus £1.37 booking fee for each ticket, rip off really. You could take your chances with the free tickets I guess, depending how early you’ll be there. Didn’t want to stump up after all the other expense but probably better being in their with the kids than wandering from pub to pub
