Puttstars, the indoor mini-golf brand operated by the Hollywood Bowl Group, has selected Queensgate Shopping Centre in Peterborough for a regional debut location, set to open later this year, marking the brand’s fifth location.
Located within Queensgate’s new leisure extension, the £2.5million, 20,000 sq ft venue will offer guests three interactive nine-hole golf courses, designed for families and young adults.
Created as an immersive and comprehensive entertainment experience, Puttstars Queensgate will also offer great food, drinks, and the latest arcade games.
Ed Ginn, director of investment management at Invesco Real Estate, said: “The Queensgate leisure extension will significantly broaden the destination’s appeal for both new and regular visitors, future-proof its retail and leisure line-up, and cement its importance to Peterborough city centre.
“By choosing Queensgate for a debut site in the region, Puttstars add to the destination’s unique leisure proposition, and with Empire Cinemas forms the foundations of an incredibly exciting new development for Peterborough.”
Laurence Keen, chief financial officer of Hollywood Bowl Group, added: “We are incredibly excited to be bringing the Puttstars brand to Peterborough, and joining the brand-new extension to Queensgate provides us with a bespoke space in a destination that has a huge customer base and great accessibility.
