Bolton's Market Place opens leisure venue

March 2016

The Victorian basement vaults have been opened up and transformed into a 30,000 sq ft space. The first two food and drink operators, Italian restaurant, Prezzo, and locally-run bar, Great Ale at The Vaults opened in April.

These two outlets will be joined by Nando’s, GBK and a children’s play area in May. A nine-screen, 1,200 seat capacity cinema operated by The Light will open in the summer.

Market Place has undergone a £19 million refurbishment by owners Moorgarth and the opening of the leisure element of the centre follows significant lettings to a range of retailers over the past year.

Fashion retailer, New Look has opened a 13,000 sq ft unit, JD Sport extended and refitted its store, and Next opened a 16,500 sq ft unit.
