The Gala Bingo club in Winterton Road, Scunthorpe opened in November 1996 with an investment of a whopping £4.5 million. Back then the venue used to host live shows and celebrities like Roy Walker, Little and Large, Bobby Davro and Cannon and Ball have all appeared there.
However, since the drop in numbers the hall hasn’t seen quite the player numbers it once did but Gala Bingo have plans!
Late Night / Early Morning Opening For Gala Bingo
Currently the venue is open from 11.30am until midnight weekdays and 11am until midnight on Saturdays and noon until midnight on a Sunday. The operators have put in a request to the North Lincolnshire Council to extend their opening hours to 2:30am, seven days a week.
The change would also mean that they could open at 10am, with the exception of Sundays when opening would be at noon.
If the application is approved it could be that the Gala Bingo club in Scunthorpe offers recorded music. Alcohol and late night refreshments to customers.
Could it be that the club would also put on cabaret acts in the same way as they did when they first opened?
Objectors have until May 30th to have their views heard. These must be in writing to the local council.
