The Swindon Summer Bowl – Swindon’s very own social distance venue!

Opening to the public on Friday 17th July from 7:15pm, the gates of the bowl in the stunning Town Gardens will welcome guests for an evening of fine food, excellent entertainment, familiar music and all-round good fun.

The venue is a specifically designed space to manage current covid-19 guidelines to allow for a comfortable and controlled return to community and cultural events. Tickets must be pre-booked via the website

The iconic bowl venue in the Old Town Gardens is being transformed into a live entertainment, food and drink venue in response to the Covid-19 crisis. Event organiser Tom Falding has been working with South Swindon Parish Council (who manage the gardens) and engaged with Swindon’s Event Safety Advisory Group (a body comprising of local health & safety, environmental heath, police and licensing professionals) to ensure they have all the correct practices in place to make their event safe for customers, staff and local residents alike.

The launch night will see a staggered arrival of guests from 7:15 until 8pm, when the short formalities will take place. A short speech will be marked with the arrival of individual grazing platters, freshly prepared by The Grazing Company and delivered to your table! Expect roving entertainment and circus snippets from local performance group The Farm Yard Circus while familiar tunes play from our in-house DJ Casey-J! Each evening has a different theme and food offering. Grazing Fridays, Pizza Party Saturdays and Viva Vegan Sundays…something for everyone!

The space is colourful, inviting and exciting to be in! Tables and chairs are pre-set to comply with social distancing guidelines and each booking area is clearly marked. There are one way systems and clear signage guiding guests around the space and leading them to toilets, which are cleaned after every use. Hands-free hand wash stations with running water is provided on site, as well as hand gel.

Tables are bookable now! The £24.99 price includes admission, entertainment, your meal and first drink, children are welcome on Saturday and Sunday evening for the price of £11.99 for the same package. Head to the website to see what else is on, what other safety measures are in place and to book your table!
