“Leisure activities are driven by younger Millennials and parents of under-16s. Eating at pubs is a popular leisure activity, yet so is staying-in and ordering a takeaway. As the pay squeeze intensifies, more people are turning to free activities such as museums and galleries. Meanwhile, people are continuing to focus on active lives and exercise which is driving the gym industry. Venues are modernising communications between visitor and activity through the use of advanced technologies such as virtual reality and 4D experiences in a bid to drive footfall”
