25 years ago, on 22 September 1994, we were treated to the very first episode of Friends on our TV screens. The show’s runaway success saw the cast shoot in a range of exotic locations over the course of its 10 seasons, including in London’s Fountain Studios for The One with Ross’s Wedding.

Although Fountain Studios closed its doors at the end of 2016, the site has not lost its creative vibe. Instead, it is now home to the brand new Troubadour Theatre – one of Wembley Park’s most exciting cultural venues.

The 1,000 to 2,000-seat theatre transforms completely to meet the needs of each production, pushing the boundaries of what theatre can achieve in order to allow both well-known and emerging production companies to create mesmerizing and immersive shows. There’s also an impressive restaurant and a bar for socialising.

For residents of lifestyle-led rental company, Tipi, the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre adds to the already numerous charms of Wembley Park. Residents already have Wembley Stadium, the SSE Arena, Wembley, London Designer Outlet and the capital’s largest Boxpark on their doorstep. Now they can enjoy world-class productions ranging from Soul of Shaolin to War Horse just minutes from their homes.

The new theatre serves to add to Wembley Park’s growing reputation as a cultural destination and a key element of Brent’s Borough of Culture 2020 status. For those looking to stay for more than a show and a bite to eat, Tipi offers a superb collection of rental properties, with shared social spaces ranging from rooftop gardens with cinema screens to stylish kitchens and private dining rooms. Regular on-site events include rooftop yoga followed by wellness breakfasts, supper clubs hosted by MasterChef finalists, private gigs in the landscaped podium gardens, quiz nights and seminars.
