Owlerton Greyhound Stadium is celebrating its highest attendance in 12 months during what is normally the quietest months of the year.
More than 2,000 people passed through the stadium’s turnstiles for three successive weekends.
Attendances and spending at the stadium was boosted by a “two for one” deal on meals. General manager David Perry said “January and February are traditionally the quietest months for entertainment venues up and down the country, but we’ve been tackling the situation head on.
“We’re aware that people appreciate a great deal, and this is something we’ve embraced.”
The stadium’s newly refurbished 300-seater restaurant was filled to capacity on several occasions and restaurant and attendance figures were complemented directly by drinks.
Thirsty punters drank nearly 29,000 pints of draught beer and almost 7,500 glasses of wine during those three weeks.
