Family fun returns as Hollywood Bowl to reopen
Norwich’s Hollywood Bowl is planning to reopen on July 4.
New safety measures will see bowlers given the option of wearing disposable gloves while playing and wearing their own footwear.
The firm is reopening 54 centres out of more than 60 across the country and bookings are now being taken for the Norwich Riverside site.
New cleaning and social distancing measures have been introduced, including a reduction in the number of lanes available and amusement machines and bar and diner seating will be spaced out. There will be reduced customer capacity and groups will be restricted a maximum of six people, with bowlers asked to arrive slightly ahead of their booking time.
Stephen Burns, chief executive at Hollywood Bowl Group, said: “The health and safety of our customers and team remains our priority.
