Date of closure: March 2013
Address (for reference only):
Top Ten Bingo
Top Ten Bingo in Pembroke Dock close in the same month as it’s sister club in Milford Haven. The only two bingo clubs serving the area, they had both had the sword of Damocles hanging over them for several years, and although did not come as a surprise, we are sure that many locals will miss the venue greatly. There were no tragic circumstances surrounding the closure, just the all too familiar losing of the battle against the current economic climate, and bingo taxation. A small venue, it opened in 1923 as the Palace Cinema, and became a bingo hall in 1961.
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.
