Focus Dinner with Tim Wilks, Lane 7

8 June 2022, 18:30 - 22:00

The Coach House, Middleton Lodge, Middleton Tyas, DL10 6NJ

Forget what you know about bowling - the Formica tables, boulder seats and plastic hot dogs now imagine the best bar you’ve ever been, add a ten-pin bowling alley and that’s the Lane7 experience!

Starting his career with the transformation of pubs and inns, Tim turned heads with the launch of Lane7 Newcastle in 2013 when he spray-painted graffiti over millions of pounds worth of bowling tech, and he has continued to turn heads ever since.

Think neon lights and cocktails all set within the country's quirkiest venues. Everything from an empty Quick Fit garage to an old train station, Lane7 venues are far from ordinary. With 11 locations across the country (and an additional 6 coming soon), Tim shows that you can achieve tremendous growth by challenging the status quo and breaking the mould.

His next project, the multi-million-pound ‘Level X’ venues, will branch into the entertainment centre market, bringing together games and tech to create spaces for adults and kids with bowling, mini golf, interactive darts, e-carts, e-sports, batting cages and a VR zone. It’s Lane7 on steroids!

So join our exclusive dinner with this no-nonsense, straight-talking CEO, and learn more about Tim’s incredible journey so far, the lessons he’s learned along the way and his ambitious future plans.
