Extension

Empire Cinemas are coming to Queensgate in 2021, as part of the new £60 million development currently underway. Alongside the 10 screen cinema there will be a number of new restaurants and stores opening, with the leading entertainment centre acting as the anchor of the development. Complete with IMAX and Empire's own IMPACT screens, the new cinema will have the biggest screens, best sound, and outstanding luxury seating which includes double sofas and electric recliners. This new addition to the site is the ultimate way to enjoy the ltest blockbuster movies, as well as experience big stage productions and events on the big screen, whether that's tehatre, opera, ballet, music, or sport. Due to be completed in 2021, the extension will create an additional 200 jobs.
Queensgate is becoming the thriving shopping hub of Peterborough, with a wealth of new stores opening as part of the development. John Lewis & Partners has announced a £21 million investment and refurbishment, which will see an overhaul and reconfiguraion of the entire shop, with the addition of a number of exciting new features: personal styling, a Beauty Hall, and an experience desk. The entire restoration has been designed to ensure customers are offered an outstanding experience for its customers, one that's compeltely unique to John Lewis. To get a sneak preview of what the new store will look like, take a virtual reality tour using VR headsets on site now, which will showcase all of the new features. Another fantastic addition is the new Skechers, which will be located on the Upper Mall in the former River Island unit. Due to open at the end of April, the store was designed by an in-house team to offer a selection styles for men, women, and children across the 2,611 square foot store. It will join luxury crystal jewellery brand Swarovski, and Energie Fitness gym.
In order to create a safe space to construct the cinema and new restaurants, which will be built on top of the existing shopping centre, bays 10a to 20 of the bus station will be temporarily closed in ealry 2020, and substitute bays will open 150 metres away on Acland Street. This change will affect some Stagecoach and National Express services, but the vast majority of the current bus station will remain unaffected. The temporary bus station on Acland Street will have clear signs to direct people to and from the current bus station, a safe crossing route on Westgate Road, additional CCTV and lighting as well as a weatherproof bus shelter. The disruption will last for approximately 18 months.
