The firm took over the site in Bicester's town centre in January and has been on the hunt for new tenants to bring the shops back to life.

The new play centre, run by Tanya Bezuidenhout, will include a soft play area, cafe, and air-conditioned party rooms.

It will create four full-time jobs for the town plus further part-time roles.
