Curtains Up and Forks Ready – The Thrill of Combining Food with Live Shows

August 28, 2023

If you’ve booked to see a live comedy show such as Alan Carr or Russell Brand at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, why not treat yourself to a meal out too? There’s something special about eating delicious food before going to watch one of London’s fabulous stand up comedy shows. So here’s why combining food with entertainment works.

1. You Can Try New Food Close to the Venue

What could be more convenient than trying new food near a venue that hosts live comedy shows? The Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, for instance, is located next to some of the best restaurants in town, including our very own Studio Five restaurant. We have been visited by some of the world’s top musicians, including Nina Simone, Freddie Mercury and John Lennon, and we offer a mouth-watering, modern menu. Join us at our relaxed, upbeat restaurant before taking your seats at your chosen show.

2. You Can Sit Back and Relax

Eating out before a show means you can sit back and take the day off, without any kind of cooking or meal planning. By booking a table in advance, you can explore London in style, knowing dinner is taken care of before the show starts. Pre-theatre dining is big business in the capital and you’ll get the efficient service you deserve. You’ll also be a stone’s throw from the theatre, meaning there’s no need to hurry between finishing your food and the curtain rising.

3. You Can Spend Time with Friends and Family

Chances are you’re not going to the theatre alone. You’ve probably arranged to meet with friends and family, so what better way to catch up properly than with a delightful pre-theatre meal? You’ll be able to share stories around the table and update each other properly, before heading off for a night of entertainment.

4. You Can Get All Dressed Up

A meal out followed by a theatre show is the perfect excuse to get glam. Dressing up is all part of the fun and will help you to feel confident when you venture into town. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with a bit of self-care and if you have somewhere to go, even better. A smart-casual look is fine if you plan on exploring the city before your meal – just wear something that makes you feel comfortable and at your best.

5. You’ll Make Memories of a Lifetime

If you’ve booked your theatre tickets, it’s well worth planning a full day out and making memories to last a lifetime. You’re sure to get hungry, so reserving a table at a restaurant will add to the excitement. Be sure to take plenty of pictures with your loved ones and enjoy a day out to remember.

Food and live theatre shows go hand-in-hand. If you’re heading to the Troubadour Wembley Park, book your table at Studio Five today. We’re located at the venue, so you can relax over your pre-theatre meal enjoy the experience.
