Planning approved for Wembley events

Planning consent has been granted for the construction of a temporary live events venue at Wembley, during the £25m refurbishment of Wembley Arena. The latter will be closed between January and September 2005. Wembley Arena Pavilion, supplied by Arena Structures, will open in February, with space for up to 10,000, and will be located close to the existing facility, on a site formerly used as a car park. Facilities will include a full-sized, fully insulated arena auditorium, with a permanent stage and rig, VIP catering and large front-of-house and backstage facilities.
