Work begins on a multi-million pound entertainment complex in the city of Somerset Bath City News

Work has officially started on a £ 16million entertainment development in the heart of Bridgwater.

Named Northgate Yard, the development will include a seven-screen cinema, an eight-lane bowling alley and sports area, as well as several restaurants.

It is expected to take a little over 17 months and is expected to end in October 2022, barring any major setbacks.

The program will also include outdoor meeting places and the nearby green space, Brewery Field, will be upgraded to include an outdoor children’s play area and park with a pond and landscaped plantation.

It comes just three months after preparatory work began on site in Bridgwater, where vegetation was removed from the Mount Street parking lot before the nesting season began.

The state-of-the-art seven-screen cinema will be operated by Scott Cinemas, who provided artist images of what the building could look like once it opens.

The all new ten pin bowling alley operated by the regional company Allstars will entertain families and groups with eight bowling lanes and sports bar facilities.

“It has been a pleasure working with the local community to design this development and create a much needed and much needed entertainment center for people of all ages.”
