Despite the large snow flakes falling in Salisbury, I am pleased to say that we will be open as normal tonight, Friday 1st February. For those travelling by car please consider road conditions on your route before travelling. The main roads in Salisbury are clear but parking at Special When Lit is snow covered.

A quick note to say that we are open as normal tonight, Fri 13th March and open tomorrow, Sat 14th March 11:00 to 17:00.

Normal practice at SWL is that all flipper controls, start buttons, ball plungers and glass retainers are cleaned with an antibacterial / antiviral agent. So don't PANIC !

Everyone will be asked to wash hands on entry and to use the antibacterial hand gel as necessary.

Also open next Friday 20th March and Saturday 21st March 11:00 to 14:30.

We moved from a Saturday opening to a Sunday opening, in order to help with car parking in and around Special When Lit as the car garages in the locality are normally closed on Sunday. Also there are no parking restrictions on the main roads that are normally permit parking or time restricted.

Two sessions 1pm - 3pm and 3pm - 5pm. You can register here http://www.specialwhenlit.co.uk/clubandleague.php

Just want to say how much I appreciate the continued efforts of Peter, Moira and Hilary in giving us the legend that is special when lit Salisbury. During these challenging times it provides an absolute pleasure for all us self confessed Pinball addicts! (You know who you are!😉).
The current classics line up just takes you back to those fabulous teenage years when all your Brain was full of was your next Pinball buzz! Belters like Flash Gordon, Harlem Globetrotters, Fathom, Ground shaker and Seawitch. To name a few.
Thanks again doodes, for providing a great escape. It’s much appreciated. So much fun. Means a lot.
Take care. Keith.
