Major Nightlife Organisation Joins The Evolution of Bishops Walk
Daniel Lafford, Meridian Director
Leading Cirencester leisure, entertainment and retail businesses, Meridian, are developing a new night venue and fast food unit throughout the first floor of the town's only undercover shopping arcade, Bishops Walk.
Meridian Leisure and Entertainment, alongside sister company, Meridian Retail, which owns Seventeen Black in Castle Street, Cirencester plans to transform the nightspot of the recently closed Rock Club and Times Square as a night club and cocktail lounge, with high value food and a drinks bar.
Meridian Director Daniel Lafford said:"Our customers constantly urge us to secure the excellent first floor area of Bishops Walk, which we have now achieved following the closure of the Rock Club and Times Square, and I strongly believe that what we have learned from Seventeen Black will lead to these two new businesses doing well in a relatively short space of time.
"The key will be fair value in a clean and safe environment. Both businesses will be fully opened this year with a strict entry policy", he added.
The acquisition of the first floor area by Meridian is the latest development in Bishops Walk in recent months. Cotswold Artisan Coffee and Pink Planet Games are already trading and fruit and vegetable specialists Bramleys, will move from their shop in the Brewery Car Park to a ground floor unit in Bishops Walk. Two more new businesses are expected to be announced shortly.
David Allberry, managing agent for Bishops Walk said:"Everyone is working hard to come through the recession; the arrival of the new businesses is just the fillip everyone needs".
The new businesses will join a wide ranging of businesses in Bishops Walk, including the Cake House, Compleat Kitchen, Roses,Master Cobbler, Carphone Warehouse, Barnardos, Phone Box, Michael Hart Butchers, 02.
Marketing and PR consultant Robin Thompson said that the venue is also growing as a key centre for charity fund raising and various business supported events and presentations. Wednesday October 2 from 6-30pm. will see the launch of new hanging mobiles built from recycled materials by students at Cirencester's College and School.
Other students from the school will perform their own music via two 30 minute sets. Up to 150 students, families, town leaders and businesses are expected to attend the free event, during which canapés and soft drinks will be served.
