The Broadway has announced Flip Out, a family-focused leisure venue, has signed a lease for a two-level unit in the Centre. The move will bring the brand’s unique offering to West Yorkshire for the first time and create up to 40 new, local jobs.

Ian Ward, General Manager at The Broadway, said: “The Broadway is committed to ensuring that we bring the people of Bradford and the surrounding region the very best experiences. I’m immensely proud that The Broadway will be home to Flip Out’s very first West Yorkshire location.
“The Broadway has always had community at its heart; we’re a key destination for families and young people. That is not to say Flip Out is just for children and families – it’s hugely popular and I’m confident it will attract visitors from the immediate West Yorkshire region and much further afield.
“As the city anticipates Bradford 2025 and Bradford Live, coupled with the increase in visitors to the city this will bring, it is important that the Centre supports and enhances the city’s night time economy with exciting leisure venues.”
Flip Out in Bradford will be an adventure-style format including slides, free running, inflatables, assault course with the latest technology.
