Southport Mecca Bingo offers bingo players the opportunity to play bingo everyday, afternoon and evening, and it regularly runs promotions to give you better value for your money.
Southport Mecca is situated in the premises of the old Garrick Theatre. Seating 1,600, it was opened in 1932, and is a good example of Art Deco architecture and design. Despite only seating capacity not being that large, it did have four boxes, as well as a sizeable foyer. Designed exclusively for stage performances, which included ballet and musicals, this changed when Essoldo purchased the venue in 1957, for cinema usage. Live performances continued until 1963, when the whole venture closed, and was converted into a bingo club – ‘Lucky Seven’. Prior to Mecca Bingo’s ownership, it was also owned by Top Rank, and is now a listed building.
There’s seating for 1008, and 40 EBingo terminals. There is one bar, and a cafe, and 50 car parking spaces. For disabled patrons there are 8 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.

Provided exclusively for Playing Bingo by the artist duo Henry/Bragg who photographed several UK bingo halls as part of their B.I.N.G.O project, this set shows a well preserved venue. The design theme of the interior has a bold use of shapes in the structure and decoration and steers away from the elaboration of some of the theatre designs of the era. The shape of the interior is ‘framed’ by lines both on the ceiling and the walls. Little has been altered in the building except for the inevitable use of ‘Mecca carpets’, as there is only so much carpet restoration you can do, so they are usually the first aspect of a venue to change. It’s good to see that the boxes are still in use and that overall everything appears to be in a great state of repair. The exterior is not one of the most impressive to be seen, but, in its day it was probably well lit at night.
