Big Fang Collective is set to open its latest multi branded venue in Leeds in late Autumn 2022.

The Liverpool-based entertainment venue operator, who own both the Ghetto Golf and Golf Fang brands, are planning to open the latest Golf Fang site in Redcote Lane, Kirkstall. The company, founded by Kip Piper and Daniel Bolger, was founded in 2016 when they opened their first Ghetto Golf in Liverpool inside of the 25,000 square-foot Cains Brewery. The Golf Fang concept offers a twisted 18-hole golf course in an environment surrounded by bespoke art, combining crazy golf with theatre, cocktails, DJs and street food in a ‘sprayground’, where the venue provide selected graffiti writers with golf courses built into unique designs such as buses, shop fronts, film studios and local historical pubs. The company now own and operate five sites across the UK, in Birmingham, Newcastle, Liverpool, Sheffield and Glasgow, with its Ghetto Golf, Golf Fang and Birdies Bar brands. Golf Fang Leeds will be their sixth location following a successful launch in Sheffield, which saw the opening of a 38,000 square-foot multi-concept project that will also involve the launch of a tropical Birdies Bar and several seasonal pop-ups, due to open later this year. Big Fang Collective are now looking to expand further and acquire new venues across UK cities, with an additional seven already planned to launch over the next two years. Big Fang Collective’s focus on delivering next level entertainment spaces, coupled with the brands’ market-disrupting nature and commitment to ‘changing the way the UK enjoys itself’, attracted investment from Imbiba earlier this year. Renowned for investing in high growth, category leading leisure and entertainment brands. The investment will help the company as they look to expand across the UK. Kip Piper, co-founder of Big Fang Collective, said, “We’re really excited to introduce Golf Fang to the people of Leeds. As a city with a young demographic and a fun atmosphere, Leeds is a great location for the concept. This venue will feature some of our most popular experiential elements as well as a few new courses. We can’t wait to see how our guests will interact with the new space and we’re looking forward to celebrating with everybody.” The venue will be open seven days per week from midday till late, with bookings and walk-ins both accepted. Launch date to be confirmed in due course. More information about Big Fang Collective can be found on their website:
