The town’s UKP Leisure Club is under new management.
The two venues have been taken over by Mike Farrow, a Managing Director vastly experienced in food operations with a background working in large companies.
The club will continue to offer local people great opportunities for nights out including live entertainment with popular local bands, dinner dances, tribute nights, quiz nights, murder mystery evenings and much more.
As well as this great entertainment, guests will be able to enjoy fantastic high-quality meals.
The club’s annual music festival attracted more than 2,500 this year and planning is already underway for next summer, with an even better line-up aimed at increasing the attendance further.
The Clubhouse bar in the Avenue of Remembrance is now open from midday to close every day and food is served seven days a week from noon to 9pm including Sunday Lunch with a Sunday Carvery to be introduced in January. The Bar has a variety of entertainment running throughout the year and visitors can also enjoy snooker, pool, bar billiards or darts plus free wifi access.
