Mecca Bingo Grays, Quarry Hill Background And History

Grays Mecca Bingo was closed by owners The Rank Group due to the club's financial underperformance. After careful consideration they decided to terminate the lease resulting in a loss of over 20 jobs.

The venue of Grays Mecca has always been a centre of entertainment. It opened during the War (second), in 1940 as the Ritz Cinema. An Art Deco styled structure, it had 1,500 seats and although built after the 'lavish thirties' it is still quite an impressive building. It survived until 1976 when it was converted into an independent bingo club, prior to Mecca's take over.

If you have any further details that may assist us, and you would like to share them with our readers, we would love to hear from you. If you let us know what you know, we will put the details online with your name credited (if you wish, or we can credit the article as anonymous). You will be doing a service to the bingo community and posterity by helping us record details of all Britain's bingo clubs and halls. Thank you.
