- Escape-room gaming company Escape Hunt said it planned to open its 10th owner-operated site in the UK in Norwich on Wednesday following a delay due to Covid-19.

Work at its 11th site, in Basingstoke, was substantially complete with opening planned for October.

Contracts for a twelfth site at the Brewery Quarter in Cheltenham had been completed, with games for the site manufactured and delivered and fit-out to commence shortly.

'This progress represents important steps in the execution of our key strategic priority to increase our UK owner-operated footprint,' chief executive Richard Harpham said.

'In each case we have been able to secure a prime retail site on favourable terms, which is testament to the growing strength of our proposition and the opportunity afforded by the current retail property environment.'
