Gala Bingo Rugby, North Street Background And HistoryRugby's Gala Bingo club closed in December 2011 after having been up for sale since 2007. Although an offer has been accepted for the premises, we currently do not know what the usage of the building will be. As Gala have sold the place then it's unlikely that the building will be used for bingo - if Gala couldn't make it work then could someone else? We could be wrong, and we hope we are, so if you know what has happened to the club since changing hands please let us know.

Unfortunately our update is not good news for bingo players in the Rugby area. We have been contacted by Paul Sharp who walked past the site of the closed hall in January 2012, only to see that the club had been completely demolished, in little more than a month from its closure. It's unlikely that the club will ever reopen somewhere else; however we've always got our fingers crossed, so, if it does reopen somewhere else, please let us know about it.

I just passed the former Plaza/Granada/Gala Rugby. Only the foyer and stage ends remain. The demolition men have had the middle!

This was my local club, which was well attended to the very end. Beautifully maintained too throughout by Gala Clubs, it was a real shock to us all to hear that it was closing.
The reason? Pure greed I'm afraid in my opinion. Gala got a big offer for the site, it was raised within 3 weeks of closure.
What's there now you ask? Absolutely nothing! The space is being used as a 'temporary' car park! And yes, there's a little heart ache in this, as my grandad as the Mayor of Rugby officially opened the cinema way back in the 30s.
