A North Tyneside bowling alley plans to bring a seasonal outdoor entertainment experience to its site this summer.
Burn It Up will host the outdoor festival-style street food, drinks and entertainment venue from April at its outdoor location opposite Royal Quays in North Shields.
With plans to cater for up to 1,000 guests across the 1.6-acre space, the site will have five areas – The Pavilion, The Picture Yard, The Village Hall, Gin Garden, and Feastery Street – a street food collective offering the best of the North East foodie scene including Acropolis Street Food, What's Your Beef? specialty burgers, Wood Fired Pizza Truck and more.
Mirroring the government’s roadmap on easing lockdown restrictions, Burn It Up has announced a line-up of events and attractions, including fairground rides, live music, comedy nights and bingo in the 400-seater Pavilion. The Picture Yard will play host to screenings of cult film and this summer’s top sporting moments, including the delayed Euro 2020 matches, Wimbledon, and the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
Burn It Up will also become hub for child-friendly clubs, entertainment and kids’ films, with dedicated family-friendly morning opening hours.
“With outdoor socialising becoming the new norm in hospitality, we want to inject some much-needed entertainment back into the calendar. Crucially, this will be done in a safe and secure way in the lead up to summer and beyond. We’ve worked very closely and positively with all parties to make sure we deliver a safe, friendly environment for people to enjoy themselves in what is a large outdoor space,” says owner, Tim Wilks.
Covid-safe measures will be in place throughout the site.
