“The opening of Hollywood Bowl’s dazzling range of bowling and fun activities is another big step forward in adding to the existing leisure offering at the centre.

"With the cinema, and broad choice of eateries, like the recent success of the newly opened Wagamamas, and even more entertainment options to come, Merry Hill is so much more than a place to shop.”
