Palace Bingo in Bedworth is situated in what appears to be an old cinema/theatre, although we are not sure of its original name. Still retaining the venues original features it is a small family run business. The only real change to the interior apart from the addition of the tables is the strip lighting, which in most conversions is inevitable. This is a heartwarming set of photos, as there is a smile in every shot, capturing the essence of bingo: it’s about fun, and getting out, not just about winning. Having said that, the biggest smile does actually come from the lucky lady who has either called for a line or a full house.
