IN acknowledgment of England's first matches in the Euros, Hollywood Bowl has introduced an appealing offer.

On June 15 and June 16, people visiting any centre, including attraction in Basingstoke, while sporting a waistcoat will be entitled to free bowling.

Walk-in customers can take up bowling at no cost. Pre-bookers in waistcoats may receive a VIP upgrade depending on availability or obtain a voucher for a future complimentary game.

The scheme is a tribute to the England football manager Gareth Southgate, with his waistcoat being an emblem of national unity.

Customers can utilise their own shoes for bowling and are advised to pre-book their visit via the Hollywood Bowl website.

"We wanted to create a special experience that brings families together and adds to the excitement. By offering free bowling to waistcoat-wearing families, we're not only celebrating our national team's journey but also encouraging families to create lasting memories together."
