You hear Wembley, you think stadium. It’s like hearing Friday and thinking wine. But Wembley’s changing and thanks to dedicated Wembley-ites, new projects are popping up. One such project is Cottrell House, a disused car showroom that’s been empty for 20 years. With help from Brent council, Meanwhile Space has transformed the showroom into a creative enterprise space for people to come and work, get business advice and hold events.

Throughout November and December the space is putting on some special evenings, aimed at bringing the people of Wembley together. Get down for some of these great events, and to experience something other than the stadium floodlights:
