A TOWN centre bingo hall is one of three in the UK which were bought out by a rival firm earlier this month.
The iconic Ritz in South Street has been bought from the Nobles Group by Northampton-based Beacon Bingo or an undisclosed sum.
The firm has also bought an adult gaming centre in Ilkeston, also owned by Nobles.
Two other Nobles bingo venues in Redcar and Margate, and a family entertainment centre in Margate were included in the deal
Chief executive Nick Harding said he was ‘delighted’ with the acquisition of the five sites.
