Hollywood Bowl has confirmed the St George’s Shopping Centre in Harrow is to become the latest venue for its mini golf bar brand Puttstars.
Work is expected to begin on the multi-million pound indoor entertainment centre next month, with a predicted opening date later this year. “We’re delighted to confirm we will be opening a Puttstars indoor mini golf venue at the St George’s Centre in Harrow at the end of this year,” said Hollywood Bowl spokesperson.
“Work on the new £2.4m family entertainment centre is due to start in July and once complete, the venue will create around 30 new jobs. We are looking forward to sharing more information in due course.”
The Harrow venue is part of Hollywood Bowl’s recently announced plan to open between 14 and 18 new sites across the UK before 2024.
The major expansion strategy comes as the firm attempts to recoup some of the £14.5m lost during the six months to 31 March, as revenues for the period fell 82 percent to £12m.
“The considerable demand we saw from customers when we reopened after the first lockdown and the strength of our pre-bookings for May gives us confidence that we can recover to pre-pandemic performance levels as families flock back for fun, celebrations and affordable activities,” said CEO Stephen Burns.
