THE Chronicle was given a behind-the-scenes look at the new town centre’s new bowling and family entertainment complex ahead of its much-awaited opening in just three weeks’ time.

Superbowl UK is set to open on October 15 and is situated at the Glass Works - the town centre’s 590,000sq ft retail and leisure centre - neighbouring Nando’s and overlooking the new public square.

George Smith, the marketing and events executive for Superbowl UK, said: “We’re all really excited.

“The last Superbowl UK opening we had was in Norwich in 2019, so it does feel like a long time since anything like this has happened.

“We are very excited to be here and we hope the people of Barnsley are just as excited as us.”
