We are not sure about this club, and we think its history as a bingo venue was a brief one, bingo being tried out on Saturday evenings during the sixties. Originally the premises were a gym, which was converted into a cinema. Rebuilt as a theatre in 1922, which then operated as a cinema post 1931, the premises were converted into a church and have since been demolished.

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.

One thought on “Waterloo Winter Gardens – Church Road

  1. The reason for the name ‘Winter Gardens’ is because it was a cinema. I remember I used to go there in the early 60’s. They used to show horror films on a Saturday afternoon matinee.
