Date of closure: December 4th 2011
Address (for reference only):
Rugby’s Gala Bingo club closed in December 2011 after having been up for sale since 2007. Although an offer has been accepted for the premises, we currently do not know what the usage of the building will be. As Gala have sold the place then it’s unlikely that the building will be used for bingo – if Gala couldn’t make it work then could someone else? We could be wrong, and we hope we are, so if you know what has happened to the club since changing hands please let us know.

Unfortunately our update is not good news for bingo players in the Rugby area. We have been contacted by Paul Sharp who walked past the site of the closed hall in January 2012, only to see that the club had been completely demolished, in little more than a month from its closure. It’s unlikely that the club will ever reopen somewhere else; however we’ve always got our fingers crossed, so, if it does reopen somewhere else, please let us know about it.
