Work has started at Feethams, Darlington’s feature leisure and entertainment complex to develop the appearance, access, facilities and ambience whilst improving the overall visitor experience, supporting existing and encouraging new businesses.

The project incorporates a number of physical developments starting with the creation of a feature timber pagoda around the main entrance rising up to podium level, awnings to existing shop fronts and the addition of living wall panels and artwork to bring the space to life. Other enhancements include the installation of a digital screen that will feature information and signposting to activities and events.

Significant work on the podium level will include the installation of a pergola structure with retractable roof and planters; alterations to flooring finishes; new pop up unit with a flexible use will create a multi-function, dynamic public space that will feature a regularly changing variety of options which could include a café, pop up retail, bar, entertainment, community events etc.

Feethams are planning a full annual calendar of activities following on from the extremely successful 2018 ‘Feethams Winter Wonderland’. Throughout 2019 there will be activities, events, promotions and competitions to encourage visitors to make the most of the new space and to experience and take the time to explore the varied opportunities to eat, drink and socialise.
