Mecca Bingo, Chester, offers bingo players the opportunity to play bingo every day, afternoon and evening, and it regularly runs promotions to give you better value for your money.

The building first opened as a cinema called the Gaumont Palace, which opened on the 2nd March 1931. The name was shortened 5 years later to just ‘The Gaumont’. It was the only cinema in Chester to have a restaurant, which was called the Oak Restaurant. Today where the restaurant was is partially bingo tables and partially a bar called the Tudor lounge.

The cinema stopped showing films on the 9th December 1961 (with the last film being shown called The marriage-go-round) and was converted into a bowling alley and club. In 1970 it was converted into a bingo hall by Rank, which is the Mecca bingo that is still open today.

There’s seating for 1450, and 50 EBingo terminals. There are two bars, a cafe, and 300 car parking spaces. For disabled patrons there are 7 disabled seats, 1 disabled toilet, and disabled access. Please contact us if you can give us more information on this club’s background or history.

  1. I have just spent the worst afternoon at bingo ever. Everybody was shouting about 3 people playing travellers, they won 15 times with a total of £245 as the lady next to me shouted. I moved table but they were shouting there, I went to the toilet they were there shouting. I can understand not everyone can afford travellers, but when people that have been going for years say they are not coming back something must be done. I love a game of bingo but it will be a long time before I go back there. I think you should change the rules and give people the traveller or the books at the same price if not there will be no bingo left. I go for a nice time not a slanging match. please do something soon. Thank you.

  2. I went to Mecca bingo in Chester last night for the first time in ages, thinking things may of changed. How wrong was I. I wasn’t shocked at the low count of players. This is due to the travellers/electronic game. Unfortunately I can see this being the end of the Mecca.You need to do something and quick. I for one will not be returning.

  3. I have been going to this venue for a couple of months with my husband and 2 sons with their partners. We have a wonderful time. The staff are helpful and the caller is friendly. I have even spoken to the manager, who is seen a lot, which is nice to see. I have not won anything yet but enjoy going and is a fun night.
