THE Kingfisher Shopping Centre has launched a brand new health, well-being and fitness studio.

The new studio will host a range of fitness and leisure activities from yoga to karate and dance, among other fitness classes.

Classes will be run by external companies who wish to use the space to inspire and teach.

The hope is that it will ensure there is a wide range of activities on offer for everyone in the local community to get involved in.

Ken Williams, general manager at Kingfisher, said: "We’re incredibly excited to be able to open Studio One to the public; being able to convert this fantastic space into a useful asset to the community feels like a great achievement.

"From restaurants and shopping to entertainment and fitness, our aim is to make the Kingfisher an exciting and convenient leisure destination.

"We can’t wait to open Studio One’s doors and get started."

Studio One is now open and is located on the second floor of Canon Newton House, accessed via the lifts/stairs near The Perfume Shop.
