The play area is situated next to the new food hub The Crossing on the upper floor of the shopping centre. It replaces Bonkers Play, which closed last year.

Stephen Brickell, commercial property manager at Kavanaghs, said: "We were approached by an existing client for whom we recently completed an acquisition in Oxford to assist them with a new venture in the Brunel Shopping Centre.

"We were able to successfully assist in completing a 10 year lease on the 9500 sq ft unit on very competitive terms.

"By instructing us to act from the outset we were able to make substantial savings for our client from the quoted asking terms, which included purchase of the fixtures and fitting, and this deal is proof that by involving the right professionals from the outset a big cash saving can be made, and terms agreed giving the tenant greater flexibility so that they can focus on what they do best – running their business.”
