Live music, stand-up comedy, modern cinema complexes and a warehouse full of trampolines: There’s something for everyone in our Loughborough entertainment round-up!
Entertainment in Loughborough
Part of the Baxter Gate leisure development in the town centre, Cineworld Loughborough is an eight-screen multiplex showing the latest Hollywood blockbusters. As well as the usual range of popcorn, drinks and snacks, there’s an on-site Starbucks and Baskin Robbins stand. The nearby Beehive car park is the best place to park if you’re driving, or you can make the five-minute walk through the southern end of the town centre from our Loughborough hotel. The other main cinema in town is the smaller six-screen ODEON Loughborough just down from Market Place near Queen’s Park.
Loughborough Town Hall
In the heart of Loughborough overlooking Market Place, Loughborough Town Hall is the leading event space in town. Originally built as a corn exchange and ballroom in 1855, the imposing building now hosts everything from stand-up comedy, live music, exhibitions, musicals and family shows. The 550-capacity main room has welcomed some big names including Ruby Wax, Status Quo and global smash hit musical ‘Chicago’. The foyer bar is open for drinks and snacks before and during the shows, while recommended nearby cafes and restaurants include Dolcino, the Organ Grinder and Fernandez Grillhouse.
Spread over a gigantic 35,000 square feet, Jump Giants is the ultimate trampoline park, boasting a dodgeball and basketball courts, battle beams, a wipeout zone, a dedicated area for kids and the cafe. The park is also home to the UK’s largest Ninja Court, a sprawling, foam-lined arena with floating doors, cannonball swings and more obstacles than you could shake a foam joust at. The park is open daily until 8pm during the week and is located several miles east of the town centre in an industrial zone in Burton on the Wolds.
