Created in 1934 as the Empire Pool, we undertook a substantial renovation of the listed Arena, preserving the original pool beneath the auditorium, introducing state-of-the-art acoustic treatments to transform the sound quality of events and rotating the building to face the new Stadium so the two venues could ‘connect’ at the heart of Wembley Park.
