Hi, I’m Darren Pearce, Centre Director at Meadowhall.
I’m proud to have worked here for over 20 years and, in that time, I’ve witnessed Meadowhall become the leisure destination it is today. Popular with shoppers, cinema fans and diners, the centre is a showcase for British Land’s approach to intelligent place-making. It’s a place people prefer, no matter what they enjoy doing.
Community has been at the heart of Meadowhall since its opening 26 years ago. We have played a significant role in the region’s growth, employing up to 8,500 people during peak times, and working to support local projects.
We continue to embrace change, with our biggest ever refurbishment programme presently underway, and plans are in place to introduce a proposed £300 million Leisure Hall set to add a diverse range of dining and entertainment experiences, as well as a state-of-the-art cinema and gym.
I look forward to working alongside our centre and retail teams as we move forward, to ensure Meadowhall continues to be an outstanding place to visit.
