Banbury Bowl welcomes customers again as part of reopening day
A popular entertainment venue in town - Banbury Bowl - has reopened this week
Banbury Bowl in the town centre of Banbury has reopened today, Monday May 17.
Banbury Bowl was refurbished in November 2019, which included intelligent multicoloured lane lighting, shabby chic bar, DJ hosts, Namco arcade, pizza menu and far improved drinks offer. The venue had previously closed in February 2019 after the collapse of the failed MFA Bowl UK chain.
The venue is fully air conditioned ready for the summer and has new lines of Walls ice cream, slush and milkshakes ready for the months ahead.
Pete Terry, managing director of the company, said: “We as a company have loved being in Banbury despite the centre being closed by lockdown just four months after we opened.
"We are looking forward to building a great business and being a part of the local community as well as a family entertainment centre. We can’t wait to welcome back our diverse range of customers from kids using our elephant ball ramps, teenagers, students and adults. Bowling really is great fun for everyone.
"We invested £300k in this venue, and I know it will be worth the wait to get it open and trading again.
“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 retain all our staff, and now we look forward to a great summer of fun and bowling.”
People are encourged to book online as the entertainment venue is already experiencing exceptional demand.

General Manager Kieran Graham added: “The team and I can’t wait to get the doors open again and provide some safe family fun to all our customers.
"Our new focus is lane service this will mean people can enjoy bowling and have everything brought to them with just a few clicks of our app, which you can download from App Store or Google Play.
"We have recruited a further five members of staff before opening in order to make sure we can look after all our customers."
