Club 3000 Bingo, the largest independent bingo operator in the UK, has provided an update on the eagerly awaited opening of their multi-million pound Blackpool venue. The retail bingo operator revealed that the building is nearly complete of their brand new bingo club at Festival Leisure Park in Blackpool, with the contractors now starting work on the inside of the Blackpool club.
With work in full motion, the plan is to open the Club 3000 Bingo Blackpool at the end of June this year. Just in time for the summer crowds and a welcome boost to the UK bingo community amid a spate of bingo hall closures dominating the UK bingo news.
So far, £5 million has been spent equipping the club's interior to create a luxurious environment. The new bingo club will be the 10th Club 3000 bingo venue in England's North West.
As well as providing a significant boost to the local community, the new bingo hall will help raise the profile of the unique leisure destination the venue is set in.
Bingo's Coming Home (For Sean)
For the club manager, it is a returning home of sorts.
The club manager is Sean Connoly, who has a lot of bingo experience, having worked in the industry since 1988 throughout clubs in the UK. Sean is also a local and grew up in nearby Fleetwood and returned to his hometown with his family in 2019.
An excited Sean said:
“I'm incredibly excited and proud to be General Manager of Club 3000's brand new club in Blackpool! Bingo is still incredibly popular, and a big town like Blackpool will love the great value, fabulous prize money, and first-class customer service that Club 3000 Bingo always offers. I cannot wait to open the doors this summer!”
Brian Fraser, the founder of Club 3000, said of the Blackpool opening:
“We are thrilled that we are looking towards an opening date of late June 2023 and are excited about all the plans we have to open a state-of-the-art bingo club in Blackpool”
