At the moment we do not have details of the events that led up to, or any of the circumstances surrounding the closure of the Palace Bingo Conwy, but we do know a bit about about the venue’s history.

The Palace Cinema opened in 1936, with capacity for 700 patrons. The cinema was not purpose built, in fact the front was previously a house, although obviously a considerably large town house. The actual cinema itself was built onto the back of the house, this included stalls, and a balcony with its own cafe. Although not one of the grander interiors of the era, it did have columns aside the proscenium, and a domed ceiling. There were dressing rooms to accommodate the performers who ‘played’ in the seventies. The cinema side of things closed in the eighties, and bingo took over full time.

If you have any further details that may assist us, and you would like to share them with our readers, we would love to hear from you. If you 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.
