FSFE Potteries / Lymelight Lanes
Lymelight Lanes is a small bowling venue next to (and above) the Vue cinema in the centre of the town of Newcastle-under-Lyme. We sometimes use this place for socials, particularly for our annual Flörgåsbord! event that we run with other local groups. We use the upstairs room of this venue, where there is 4 full size ten pin bowling lanes and enough space for 40 people for the room in general (with 6 to each lane if people want to play).
The venue serves hot food and drinks (see further down this page for information), and has music and seating with tables. There is also a website for the venue which is here... https://lymelightlanes.co.uk

🚗 Usual parking in town, but there is also the cinema car park too.
🚌 As the town has it's own bus station you'll find plenty of buses go to Newcastle-under-Lyme.
🚪 If you're entering Lymelight Boulevard from the high street, wak through until you see the stairs for Vue cinema... look to your left and enter Lymelight Lanes. Upon entering, go to the back of the and up the rear stairs to find the floor with proper Tenpin Bowling.
It's useful to know what the venue looks like ahead of time, particularly so you know you've arrived at the right place!

Food and drink
As most socials begin around 6:30pm onwards, the availability of food and drink means people don't need to worry about returning home after work to eat before coming back out again.
We've received details of the hot food and drinks (including alcohol) from the venue and we've converted it into a PDF that you can download below...
