Following its success in Wembley, BOXPARK is bringing its signature PlayBox leisure concept to Croydon this winter alongside the second outlet of National Burger Award Finalist Nanny Bill’s and smoked BBQ meat restaurant HotBox.

PlayBox was a new addition to the BOXPARK concept when its Wembley site opened in December 2018, featuring UV pool tables, table tennis, shuffleboard, glow-pong and air hockey amid a neon backdrop complete with a fully functioning bar. The new space at Croydon launching in early 2023 will be the biggest PlayBox to date, spanning over 3,000sq ft and will feature state-of-the-art competitive socialising and immersive gaming alongside family-friendly classics in the signature neon theme.

The PlayBox space at BOXPARK Croydon will also be home to a new Nanny Bill’s outlet as BOXPARK helps to propel the brand’s expansion across London. Having started life as a vintage food truck, Nanny Bill’s opened its first bricks-and-mortar space at BOXPARK Wembley. Serving its signature hand-pressed burgers and mac and cheese croquettes, Nanny Bill’s will join BOXPARK Croydon’s wider base of independent traders, alongside HotBox.

Simon Champion, BOXPARK CEO, comments: “The events we run across our various BOXPARK locations continue to perform really well and demonstrate the continued appetite among our customers for experiential. Our PlayBox concept has been a roaring success in Wembley and we can’t wait to launch PlayBox to Croydon to add a complementary element to our existing programming.”
