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 Mecca Bingo Liverpool. All we know at the moment is that it was previously a Granada cinema

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.

  1. The Granada is still there in Dovecot East Prescot Road, the former picture house built in the 1930’s when I worked there it was owned by Mecca. I was the caller for a few years and then worked as the maintenance man for the building, this took me round to other Mecca halls, the Regal in Broadway, the Olympia in Liverpool, the Mayfair in Aigburth, the Pavilion Lodge Lane; all these halls have there own stories to tell, like the Olympia has Elephant pits underneath the building as it was the originally the site of a famous travelling circus, and the Pavilion with its wonderful 3 tier balcony still had a silver half moon that could be wound down from the roof to seat a singer singing in live music shows. The Granada is used as a dance school, and I think a boxing club – still its nice to see it getting used.

  2. This bingo hall, my mum worked in pat box years ago, Carol and my uncle was a bingo caller there too, Bob Beverly, he worked there for years like my mum, but sadly the both have passed away now most prob there playing bingo up there.
