Safe Bingo

Coronet Bingo in Didcot - open for business
Coronet Bingo Didcot Reopening 27th July

We have missed you and cannot wait to welcome you back to Coronet Bingo from Monday 27th July. There have been some changes to make the club safe & covid-secure but rest-assured your bingo will be just as fun as you remembered!
Many seats have been closed off to enable players to keep a safe distance from other groups. We have rearranged our seating for single players and groups from two to six players.

Our full guidelines are listed below. Please do read them and please do respect them when joining us in club – they are there for your safety and for ours. These will be subject to change as government guidance is updated and also as we discover what works and what doesn’t. This is new ground for all of us!

To assist the NHS with track & trace we will be assigning tables upon entry. You can view our current club layout on this page and Members will also have the option to to reserve a table. Initially we are opening evenings only and we will have a telephone booking window daily 10am-3pm where you can book a table for that evening session only. Our doors will open at 5pm and you must arrive by 7pm to claim your reserved table. Please note that booking is encouraged but not essential. Where available, seats for walk-ins will be allocated on arrival.

For those sitting upstairs please only use available seats / stools and do not share exit rows with others not in your group. Current guidance states you should only be gathering in groups of up to two households (including your support bubble). Please only play the MCB board for the seat in which you are sat.

  • Any cash used for payment by a customer will not be re-circulated for up to 72 hours. All cash given out as change or winnings should therefore be considered “safe” and “clean”.
  • Main Session bingo games will be automatically checked by the caller using Main Stage prompt. Please hold your ticket up when claiming so we can see the page colour or ticket being played. Staff will check multiple, jackpot or disputed claims. In this instance please leave your ticket on a nearby vacant table where possible.

We must limit use of the smoking garden for up to five individuals at one time or five pairs at one time – so a maximum of 10 people. Please use vacant / in-use sliders when entering and leaving the garden. If smoking outside the front of the club during the interval, please avoid smoking directly outside the front door and only use the entrance door and not the exit to avoid potentially clashing with the ladies toilet queue.
  • Please be aware we must have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy on persistent coughing or sneezing. If you show ANY symptoms of coronavirus – including persistent coughing or sneezing – you will be asked to leave. If you do need to occasionally cough or sneeze please do so into a tissue or your elbow then immediately discard the tissue and wash your hands. Please assist us by staying safely at home and calling NHS 111 if you feel unwell or have any symptoms of coronavirus.
