Eyes down looking! Wakefield Mecca gets ready to welcome back bingo fans

The original bingo brand Mecca is bringing bingo back in Wakefield and will open its clubs to customers on Monday, May 17, promising to do so with even more fun and entertainment.

Reopening venues is an even bigger deal for Mecca as 2021 marks its 60th year of being a part of British towns and cities, and at the heart of local communities.

With all eyes on the leisure sector to help drive people back into the local area, Mecca say that their unique combination of being a community brand, alongside the fact that they have lots of new ways to play and win in store, will see them bounce back after a difficult year.

With new and immersive experience at the top of people’s list after a year of missed time with friends and family, Mecca expects to be top of the list for an evening out this year.

Gamel Kassim, General Manager at Mecca Bingo Wakefield, said: “We’re incredibly excited to welcome people back.

"We’re a friendly face in the community - that’s a really unique part of our brand and heritage - we know and love our customers very much and we’ve very active in the area when it comes to community initiatives.

"We’ve really missed being a part of people’s day to day lives so May 17th can’t come soon enough. And this year as it’s our big birthday, we’re coming back in style with more to offer than ever - we’re expecting this to be the year of bingo!”

As ever, the guest experience is the top priority for all Mecca staff, welcoming customers back after a long period of absence with even more focus on entertainment and experience. All of this is completed with new additions to the food and drinks menu – aiming to make Mecca a night out that has everything you would want in one place.

Mecca continues to employ extensive safety measures. The uniquely large and spacious bingo halls and lounges provide a safe and reassuring way to socialise and the added bonus of different session times throughout the day means that there are not necessarily the busy bottle neck periods that can occur in other leisure or hospitality venues.

A recent addition to the schedule to further support this is hourly bingo with new games starting every hour, bringing increased flexibility to the daily line up.
