“Penny Lane will be our flagship venue and will feature some of our most exciting and adventurous ideas yet. Nottingham is such a vibrant city, known for its artistic flare and independent scene, so it was really important that we created something different with a unique interactive element – Penny Lane is just that. We are really excited to open up the venue during the daytime too, which will be suitable for families and children looking to have a go on the games and relax with some casual food and drink."”

Operations director Michael Johnson
