01 March 2024

UK and Ireland law firm Browne Jacobson has advised ThinCats on its provision of £5.5m in growth capital to experiential leisure operator, Big Fang Collective (BFC).

Founded in 2016, BFC has grown from its original Ghetto Golf experience in Cains Brewery, Liverpool to become a multi-venue business with six indoor sites across the UK, currently employing more than 260 people. With each of their venues offering a combination of crazy golf, bespoke art, DJs and signature cocktails. The group has expanded its proposition and now brings together multiple concepts under one roof; including an in-house pizzeria and karaoke.

The £5.5m funding from ThinCats supports BFC’s plans for further expansion targeting cities across the UK, with a number of new venue launches already in planning.

The Browne Jacobson team was led by Senior Associate Chereta Edmeade.

Chereta Edmeade, Senior Associate at Browne Jacobson, says: 

“We are delighted to have advised ThinCats on this transaction, particularly at such a time of growth for BFC where there is so much potential. It was a pleasure to work with both parties and we look forward to seeing their future successes.”

Mike Dinnell, Director of Business Development at ThinCats, says: 

“It’s fantastic to be involved with a business like Big Fang who clearly have a strategy to grow their brand across the UK. I’m excited to see their continued growth and to be on this journey with them.”
