Winners Bingo Brandon, London Rd Background And History

Brandon Winners Bingo was closed according to owner Mr Waterman as a fiscal rationalisation. This is a common reason, and bearing in mind what happened in Scotland as a testing round for the effects of the smoking ban he was probably right. He did also point to competition from online bingo as a factor which is something that may also be true, however, he is one of the few owners to point his finger at the factor directly, most other owners pointing to a 'raft' of economic factors.

Winners Bingo still operates in Thetford and Bury St. Edmunds, and hopefully they will survive the current crisis that is besieging land based bingo halls.

Update

Brandon Winners Bingo was closed according to owner Mr Waterman as a fiscal rationalisation. This is a common reason, and bearing in mind what happened in Scotland as a testing round for the effects of the smoking ban he was probably right. He did also point to competition from online bingo as a factor which is something that may also be true, however, he is one of the few owners to point his finger at the factor directly, most other owners pointing to a 'raft' of economic factors. Since the closure the owners have submitted a planning aplication for the demolition of the site to make way for new homes (March 2017). Local residents have raised objections to the plans on the basis that they would like to see the land used for community use.
