Date of closure: March 1985
Address (for reference only):
We do know a little bit about this venue’s past, but at the moment we do not have the details of the events that led up to, or any of the circumstances surrounding the closure of Coral Bingo Chatham. If you do have any details that may assist us, and you would like to share them with our site visitors we would love to hear from you. If you contact us, and 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.
We do know that the premises opened as the Invicta in 1916 and after closing as a cinema in 1939 it became a warehouse. From 1964 to 1985 it operated as a bingo hall, (during this time we think being owned at some point by Gala), and sadly the premises have now been demolished.
