A giant screen is being installed inside the main hall at Roman Bank Bingo as the former cinema returns to its roots for a one off film screening in aid of the RNLI Skegness charity.
On Saturday 4 August the club will open its doors inviting local and visitors alike to come and join in on a sing along version of the hit film Mama Mia.
Whilst admission to the event will be free staff from the club will be collecting donations throughout the course of the night with proceeds going to the vitally important RNLI Skegness charity.
Jason Beauchamp-Hughes, general manager of the club “We always look forward to welcoming back our returning holiday-makers and helping to make their stays memorable and fun as well as ensuring we keep the locals entertained.
Our events are always popular and we wanted to try something fun that might appeal to people of all adult ages, including those who may never have stepped foot inside a bingo hall before.”
Mairi Perry, fundraising chairman at Skegness RNLI, said “Skegness RNLI are extremely grateful to Roman Bank Bingo for choosing us as their charity for the pop up cinema.We are so lucky to have such amazing support.”
The evening film screening will follow on from a Mamma Mia-themed bingo session held earlier in the day. This will include a number of fun elements based on the motion picture and the ABBA back catalogue.
Beauchamp-Hughes added “Anyone who would like to come along and make a night of it is welcome to play bingo before and stay for the film screening after.”
Roman Bank Bingo has been serving the Skegness community since 1962 when the building was converted into a bingo hall.The club was acquired in 2014 by Majestic Bingo Limited, the UK’s third largest opera- tor of retail bingo.
