MECCA BINGO HALLS ARE A SAFE SPACE FOR ALL

Ahead of reopening our clubs in England this May, we want to say that our bingo halls are a safe space for all.

We are now in our 60th year of being at the heart of local communities, and our teams across our 72 clubs want to share the message that anyone can walk into a Mecca Bingo hall* and know that it is a place where they can feel comfortable and secure as well as somewhere they will always find a friendly face.

Whether you are a customer already visiting your local club, or you are a passer by seeking help, at Mecca we have a special pledge to you:

Our first step is to provide somewhere quiet to sit for as long as needed. The next stage is to offer to make a call to a friend or family member, or in more serious situations, the emergency services. And third, is to help someone get home safely, assisting with making travel plans if needed.

So if you ever need a helping hand, please do ask a member of staff as we’re always happy to help.

* Mecca Bingo halls are licensed premises and should not be frequented by under 18s.  However, in a moment of need/exceptional circumstances, Mecca clubs are accessible to all for support.

    Will people need to book a table as you will still be social distancing. Lots of people will now be vaccinated so everyone will be back.
    Cheers

    People didn’t always wear their masks or had them under the nose which stopped us from going before. What will the cost be to play as last time prices all went up which made it an expensive night out. I really enjoy going to bingo but all the above really spoilt it for us. Sorry to have a moan. Thank you Lorraine🤞🤞

    Don’t think regulars should be allowed to save seats or tell holidaymakers where they can and can’t sit.one in particular at Mecca Scarborough making it very uncomfortable for strangers if they sit in a regulars seat and I on Principe refuse to move.its dig dig dig all night

    That’s great that Mecca are doing this for people in the community. I – myself have a disability and a medical condition so I just want to say what a great idea you have come up with. Well done Mecca!!!
