Top 3 Wembley Stadium events – other than our Awards!

The UK Customer Experience Awards will be a magnificent occasion. On 10th October, we’ll be welcoming the UK’s top CX professionals to Wembley Stadium for a celebration of customer experience achievements over the past year.

Presentations will be taking place throughout the day in the VIP boxes that ring around the historic stadium. Then in the evening, the Great Hall will be the venue for the awards ceremony, where the winners will be announced and Heather Small will provide the musical entertainment.

The venue is so iconic, and has so much history, that we want to share the other best moments in the stadium’s past.


1. Queen, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, Live Aid 1985

A strong contender for the UK’s unofficial national anthem, Queen gave one of the best performances of all time during the Live Aid concert in 1985. Are there better bands? Perhaps a few… But has there ever been a better opening to a show than this rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody? I’m not so sure!


2. FA Cup Final, 1953

I don’t know much about football but I hear it’s popular! And footballing geeks amongst you will know that the 1953 final was one for the ages. Blackpool were 3-1 down against Bolton, before an inspiring hat-trick from Stanley Matthews led Blackpool to a famous victory.


3. England vs. West Germany, World Cup Final 1966

We thought 2018 might be a repeat of England’s World Cup victory more than 50 years ago. It wasn’t to be. And that might be because England’s only triumph came when playing on home soil. The Russian linesman. Geoff Hurst. The rest, as they say, is history.



Wembley has seen no shortage of winning over the years, which is why it’s the perfect venue for the UK Customer Experience Awards. To learn from the best and get inspired, it’s the place to be.

The Awards will be held on October 10th. To book your seats, click here.
