Date of closure: July 2020
Address (for reference only):
Buzz Bingo (Lost Halls)
It was announced that Weymouth Buzz Bingo would close on the 15th of July 2020, one of 26 Buzz Bingo clubs which were victims of the prolonged lock-down of 2020 to combat the spread of Covid 19. Buzz Bingo CEO Chris Matthews took the decision to close the clubs to protect the other 91 clubs in the chain, as part of a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA), with the aim to shore-up the business going forward.

The Weymouth Buzz Bingo was a smaller hall in a repurposed building. The photos below come from its time prior when it was a Gala club, and highlight the interesting decorations on the wall that hark back to earlier times. The photographer of these shots is unknown, probably a member of staff at some point.
