Gala Bingo Shirehampton, Station 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 Gala Bingo Shirehampton. We do know that the club did reside in what used to be the Savoy Cinema prior to the venue changing its usage to bingo. The Savoy (known locally as the 'Cabbage'), opened in 1933, and had seating for 900, 700 in the stalls, and 200 above. The cinema closed in 1962, and was converted into a bingo hall. We do know that the premises did actually revert back to cinema usage at some time under Rank Ownership. Sadly, the building was demolished in 2003, and is now either the location of a block of flats, or a supermarket.

If you have any more 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.

Update

Is now replaced by apartments - see http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-50922608.html. Pity as it seemed to have retained many internal original features.
