Mecca Rosehill celebrates 60th birthday with night of entertainment
After over a year of countless lockdowns, July has finally seen the lifting of restrictions across the UK. And if that didn’t make 2021 exciting enough, this year also marks 60 years of Mecca Bingo being the heart of UK communities.
With Mecca Rosehill having opened in 1961, it’s officially the oldest bingo club in the UK, and is celebrating its 60-year milestone with an array of big entertainment filled celebrations.
On Saturday 31st July, the club will be hosting the renowned West End Jerseys for a night of sixties music to celebrate the big birthday landmark, as the band performs some of the biggest hits from The Four Seasons. With entrance from 5:45pm, the band will take to the stage from 7:30pm to wow the crowd and have guests “Beggin'” them to stay all night.
This night of fun will also include a free glass of bubbly, and the classic bingo that Mecca customers know and love, creating a night of nostalgia and celebrations. Plus, an additional treat, as Take That tribute band, Take This, grace the stage from 9:30pm for a night guests will “Never Forget”.
The musical event will follow the club’s official birthday on Thursday 29th July. For this special night of celebration, Mecca Rosehill will be putting on a night of 1960s prices to transport customers back to where it all began in 1961, with bingo costing just 60 pence for a main game, as well as offers on food and drinks.
Jason Bird, General Manager at Mecca Rosehill, said: “We’ve been counting down the days until our 60th birthday, and as the club that kick-started Mecca’s reputation as the heart of UK towns for the last six decades, we knew we had to go big! We’re so excited for our guests to enjoy our 1960s prices on the club’s official birthday, before the big birthday bonanza on the Saturday night.”
Mecca has been working hard behind the scenes to ensure customers across the UK can go back to enjoying the entertainment they love after lockdown. All Mecca clubs across the UK are hosting a night of Missed Birthday celebrations on August 14th to continue the 60th fun, after a Mecca survey found that birthdays topped the list of events that customers had missed the most during the pandemic.* The event will see clubs kitted out in birthday decorations, with birthday surprises such as unique drinks offers and exclusive bingo games.
Mecca will continue to employ extensive safety measures post Freedom Day with sanitiser stations, enhanced cleaning schedules and optional mask wearing. 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. 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.
Tickets for the West End Jerseys event cost just £25 which includes all bingo games and entertainment. To purchase tickets, please visit https://mecca.bi/RosehillBirthdayNight, the club’s Facebook page, or download the My Mecca App.
