Now closed, the Eastbourne Luxor Seven Bingo Club is quite an impressive building, and although no longer used for bingo, is still standing.
Thanks to a regular contributor to this site, Charles S.P. Jenkins we have a new Gallery page, and Charles has also written about the history of the venue.
Deluxe Bingo closed in May 2011, but luckily Charles had visited and photographed the building before its closure, the photos can be seen on the gallery page. There are some great photos of the exterior and interior, including people playing bingo.
Charles has also written an account of his visit to the club in our History Section. It’s a well written, entertaining and warm piece covering not just the history, but the emotions experienced on visiting such a great venue. You can read the piece here, which is also well illustrated with the high quality photographs he took himself, and is kindly sharing with us.
I do hope you enjoy the pages as much as I do, as I doubt I’ll ever get to visit the venue, but these pages really bring it to life.
