Brent Council’s Wembley ‘meanwhile’ project focussed on encouraging enterprise – The Coming Soon Club – is building membership.
The Coming Soon Club, run by social enterprise company Meanwhile Space in partnership with Brent Council, now has 145 members each of whom has a creative or business idea it would like to bring to life in Wembley.
The club makes use of an empty shop in Wembley Triangle, and aims to help people try out a new business idea or learn new skills. So far, the space has already been used as a hat shop, after school club, vintage clothes shop, film studio, an art gallery and a working theatre.
On top of that the Coming Soon team have just launched a handbook called ‘Meanwhile in Wembley’ to bring together useful information to help people develop their own project and guide them in how to go about making use of empty spaces.
