Big Fang Collective has appointed a new CEO and revealed plans to develop new competitive socialising concepts and open six new sites over the next two years, including a Nottingham opening targeted for early next year.

Chris Morgan will return to The Golf Fang and Big Fang Karaoke operator having left as managing director last year. 

The group says it wants to secure a presence in every major UK city by 2025 and, to this end, has further strengthened its head office team with recent hires including a new head of marketing Jack Edge (previously Mission Mars and Tokyo Industries) and a new head of sales Morgane Pavier (previously New World Trading Company). 

Its first concept initially launched in Liverpool in 2016 as Ghetto Golf, and was then refined in 2022 to become Golf Fang following £5m investment from private equity house IMBIBA.

The investment was aimed at accelerating Big Fang Collective’s growth and readying the brand’s multi-concept international rollout. 

Big Fang Collective recently introduced its newest concept Big Fang Karaoke, an immersive karaoke destination with its flagship venue set to launch in Liverpool later this month (29 September).

In the past 12 months, Big Fang Collective has also used the investment to introduce the Golf Fang brand to new cities, with sites launching in Glasgow, Sheffield and Cardiff. 

Big Fang Collective says it is dedicated to bringing show-stopping experiences to every corner of the UK, with its venues built on the foundation of immersive experiences, urban art, unique cocktails, and live music.
