Mecca Bingo has announced that its premises on Lord Street in Southport will not be reopening after the national Covid-19 lockdown ends.
The bingo hall has entertained many thousands of guests for eyes down inside one of Lord Street’s grandest buildings, the former Garrick Theatre.
Mecca Bingo Operations Director John Dyson said: “On behalf of everyone at Mecca Bingo in Southport, we are very sad to confirm that we will not be reopening our club in May and will be closing permanently.
“Mecca Southport has been a part of the local community for many years and we want to say a huge thank you to every single one of our incredible customers for their loyalty and support – we will miss you very much.
“Mecca plays a very special part in the community and has done for 60 years, bringing people together in our clubs and online. We wish all of our colleagues and customers well for the future.
“We will be keeping our Mecca Bingo Southport page open for the coming month, and we are happy to help with any queries you might have.
“Farewell from all of the Team at Mecca Southport.”
