From Bingo to Weddings

From Bingo to Weddings

 Brides and Grooms may soon be sweating numbers for a full house and spending their special day in a bingo hall. Cosmo Bingo, in Stalybridge, is working to become one of the first in the United Kingdom to become licensed to host wedding ceremonies. They already have a steady flow of hen parties so the next step is the wedding party.

Cosmo Bingo Manager, Keith Lee, said, "It certainly would be a wedding with a difference. We can tailor it to provide an area for bingo tables for guests or they can go down to the games room. We already get plenty of hen parties coming in here because they like to start the night by coming to the bingo. We would be cheaper than the bigger venues, or a big country house."

If the licensing application is approved, it would validate the ‘StalyVegas’ nickname by providing a mixture of gambling and weddings.

Less said, "Somebody down south has done it, but not up here, so we thought ‘why not?’. Cosmo has been the catalyst for so many romances over the years, this seems the perfect step for us. Our members love the club and love playing bingo so we feel it will make the perfect space for a real StalyVegas-style wedding."

Tameside council has explained that the bingo hall must submit an application form to get things going. The process will include various inspections with the registrar and health and safety workers. If approved, Cosmo Bingo would be required to provide an interview room for couples. The weddings would take place on the second floor of the building which would meet the requirement of no bars in the area. If all goes well, all that’s left to do is wait several weeks for the 32-year-old business on Market Street to become UK’s first bingo wedding ceremony site.
