First look at Puttstars - Queensgate’s upcoming miniature golf venue


Hollywood Bowl Group will be making its regional debut at Queensgate with the new centre.

Puttstars has expanded its portfolio across the UK since its launch in March 2020, with the Queensgate site set to be the brand’s fifth location.

Located within Queensgate’s new leisure extension, the £2.5million, 20,000 sq ft venue will offer guests three unique, interactive nine-hole golf courses.  

Alongside this, food, drinks, and the latest arcade games will also be on offer for visitors. 

The family-friendly venue is part of Queensgate’s emerging leisure line-up, joining a 10-screen Empire cinema within the £60m extension, which is set to complete this year. It will add nearly 80,000 sq ft of new leisure and experience-led floorspace, creating an additional 200 jobs at the Peterborough city centre destination. 

Mark Broadhead, Centre Director at Queensgate Shopping Centre, said: “We are delighted to confirm Puttstars will be joining the new extension and will bring an exciting new dimension of leisure to the centre. With Empire cinema already confirmed and further new experiences to come, the £60m extension will complement Queensgate’s enviable list of desirable brands and independent retailers to create a fantastic overall customer experience.” 

Laurence Keen, Chief Financial Officer of Hollywood Bowl Group, added: “We are incredibly excited to be bringing the Puttstars brand to Peterborough, and joining the brand-new extension to Queensgate provides us with a bespoke space in a destination that has a huge customer base and great accessibility.

"The leisure market is developing fast, with people looking to socialise in new ways. As the new home of mini golf, Puttstars is perfectly placed to offer safe and entertaining experiences for everyone – families, friends and work colleagues alike.” 

This news follows the announcement of Empire Cinemas as the anchor tenant of the new leisure extension, with the brand set to launch its 10-screen, 34,000 sq ft unit later this year
