The Festive Period at Highball


This year we will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day, but we’re open on Christmas Eve from 11:00 – 15:00 and New Years Eve from 10:00 – 16:00.

It’s also worth noting that we are closing at 18:00 on Friday 23rd. It’s the last working day before Christmas and we expect everyone to be hitting the pubs and bars after work. And in all honesty, we want to get involved too, as it’s our crew Christmas meal!

Then, as in previous years, we will operate our usual bank holiday opening hours between Christmas and New Year, of 10:00 – 18:00.

As boss man Mike kindly puts it: “Highball is open 362 days a year including 10pm closes every weekday. To have a whole week of no evenings is a once a year occasion; it’s so nice to allow the crew some extra time off to relax with friends and family.”

Breakdown of our opening hours for festive period are as follows:

  • 23rd Dec – 10:00-18:00
  • Christmas Eve – 11:00-15:00
  • Christmas Day – Closed
  • Boxing Day – Closed

Our Christmas Comp is being held on the December 27th at 12:45 – 14:45 with our normal self scoring format using Griptonite, so make sure you download it in advance and create an account, if you haven’t been using it around the centre already!
