I recently had the opportunity to visit Castle Bingo on Newport Road.
The 850-capacity bingo hall is owned and run by south Wales based company Castle Leisure, who also operate bingo halls around Wales and England.
I met with club manager Tamika; Wayne Davies, Deputy Chief Executive of Castle Leisure, Miles Baron, CEO of The Bingo Association and heard about the importance of bingo halls to their communities.
Lots of members and regular players were playing with their friends and families, and it was great to meet some of them during my visit.
My conversations enabled me to find out about the wider community of bingo halls in the UK, who are represented and brought together by The Bingo Association, along with the measures taken by Castle’s clubs to keep members and players safe and make sure it’s a fun evening out.
