Club Background And History

Chatham Gala Bingo is located on the premises of an old cinema and offers bingo players the opportunity to play bingo everyday, afternoon and evening, and it regularly runs promotions to give you better value for your money, including free bingo - give them a ring to see when you can grab a chance to play for free.

The Club is purpose built, as although it had previously been a bingo hall as well, it was demolished, and rebuilt after a fire in 1998. The original cinema was the 'Ritz', which having over 2,300 seats was one of the bigger theatres in the country. Built in 1937, it was in the Art Deco style, and had its own restaurant, and also had the facilities for live acts on stage, accompanied by a Wurlitzer 3Manual/8Ranks organ. After the cinema's closure in 1972, it converted to bingo, its initial owners being Star, then EMI and Coral, before Gala Bingo took over.

The club is located on the edge of Chatham, near Gillingham, it has a bar, diner, and slot machines if you fancy a little spin while you're waiting for the game to start. There are disabled facilities and over 25 car parking spaces are available. Please contact us if you can give us more information on this club's background or history.

Membership Problems

My grand-daughter's boyfriend could not be a member because he is 22 has no passport does not drive and has no identity card but has a birth certificate and national insurance number. They would not accept him as a member but I bet you don't ask for i.d. at the casino in Tottenham court road.
