St James Bingo Hall

 

BACK | MAIN | NEXT

St James bingo hall was situated right next to Newcastle united football ground (gallowgate end) to the locals. Was originally used as a cinema but like allot of old cinemas in Newcastle later utilised as a bingo hall and I've been told wrestling used to go on here to. The hall has long been demolished but the Strawberry pub in the background still remains. The M sign in the foreground of the recent picture is the sign of StJames metro station which lies directly underneath. Metro stations in Newcastle are similar to USA subway stations.

Often mistaken for:

Outside the Mayfair (now demolished)
