Leading national family entertainment centre brand to become part of Kingfisher shopping centre

Following the success of its four existing venues in Milton Keynes, Stevenage, Leicester and Basildon, DP Leisure, operator of the 360 Play children’s entertainment centre brand, is to open a fifth UK site in 2017, at the Kingfisher shopping centre in Redditch, Worcestershire.

 The opening of the 12,000-sq ft 360 Play unit is scheduled for mid-February 2017 and will be a shopping centre first, with all the other 360 Play venues sited on leisure parks. Among the attractions will be a two-storey play structure, bumper cars, a carousel and the 360 Street creative play zone, A party zone offering a dedicated area for children’s parties will also be included.

Kingfisher Shopping Centre is owned by Capital & Regional, with funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management. Ken Ford, executive director at Capital & Regional, said: “As the first 360 Play to open within a shopping centre environment, I believe it will not only provide very exciting leisure amenities for children and families, but will also enhance our wider retail and food and beverage offer.”
