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 Salford, but we do know a bit about about the venue’s history.
Salford Palace Bingo was located in the premises of the old Victoria Theatre. The theatre was opened in 1900, and was designed by Bertie Crewe. Throughout its life the venue switched between cinema and theatre usage, and underwent an interior redesign. Having closed in 1958 due to poor attendance, the cinema had various uses until it was eventually taken over as a bingo hall in 1973. The only information we have regarding its closure is that it has been listed for sale a couple of times over the past few years, although we do no know who any of the buyers were and what it is currently being used as.
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.
