The new owner and operator of Lewisham Lanes has stated that it “can’t wait” to welcome back guests this month, after spending £500,000 on refurbishing the south London venue.


Disco Bowl took over the former MFA Bowl prior to the first lockdown, before briefly opening the Belmont Road site in October and December, only to be forced to close again.

“We invested £500,000 in this venue and I know it will be worth the wait to get it open and trading again,” said Disco Bowl MD Pete Terry told the News Shopper. “The first lockdown saw us closed for five months, and this time the centre hasn’t traded since December.”

“That’s 11 months of closure with all the bills still to pay. We are however delighted that we have been able to survive and now we look forward to a great summer of fun and bowling.”

The alley now features a new arcade, DJ booth and lighting, and pizza bar, creating a further five jobs, and revitalising the neglected venue.

“No longer is this a tired old alley with old carpet and a poor layout,” added GM Jo Marchant. “This is a vibrant fun focussed entertainment centre and we’ve worked hard to make this a great place to come and enjoy yourself.”
