Mecca Bingo Great Yarmouth, Regent Road Background And History

At the moment we do not have details of the events that led up to, or any of the circumstances surrounding the closure of the Mecca Bingo Great Yarmouth, but we do know a bit about about the venue's history.

The venue originally opened in 1914 as the Regent Theatre. It had seating for over 1,600 patrons, was well equipped for live performances, and had its own restaurant.

ABC took over in 1929, and the venue became a full-time cinema. Renamed the Regent Cinema, it closed in 1982, and reopened at a later date as Mecca Bingo.

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.

It appears that the building is going to remain standing, and will be used as a nightclub according to its new owners Mr and Mrs Bromwich. There are concerns about noise, so at this stage of the proposal nothing is 100% as planning permission could still be refused.
