The details of Barnsley town centre’s regeneration have been released with leisure operators Cineworld and Superbowl joining the project.


The next steps in the regeneration of Barnsley town centre have been unveiled, along with the announcement that major leisure operators Cineworld and Superbowl have signed up to the ambitious scheme.

Superbowl UK will install 12 bowling lanes, laser quest, a soft play centre, lounge bar and food diner, as well as a modern amusement arcade arena, taking full advantage of the added value gaming machine placement in FECs can bring.

Having already committed £50m to fund the first phase of the scheme, Barnsley Council, alongside its development manager, Queensbury, has now committed to fund the remainder of the scheme, bringing its total investment to £120m.

The Glass Works, the new name given to the town centre development, is located on a 3.8 hectare site around Cheapside and will provide 590,000 sq ft of family-led day and night time retail and leisure uses.
