Although we don’t know the full history of the Crown Bingo South Shields, we do know a bit about the venue’s past. Part of the building dates back to 1866, when it was opened as an Adult school. Subsequently the building was remodelled around 1911, when it re-opened as the Crown Picture Hall, a place of entertainment supplying both film and variety perfomances. It was a cinema for most of the mid 20th century, as the variety acts disappeared and talkies became the mainstay right up to 1959 when the building’s life as a cinema ended.

It reopened on August 14th 1961 as the Crown Bingo Club, a part of the Hearns family of bingo clubs. A fire in 2010 damaged part of an adjoining outbuilding’s roof, but not badly enough to stop it trading as a bingo hall. This old section of the building was demolished to make way for a car-park for players at the club. The club shut its doors for bingo in September 2019, as a victim of failure of its parent company Beach Bingo.

We don’t know if there are any plans to reopen the bingo hall, demolish or develop the site at this present time.
