2020 saw the cancellation of many Christmas traditions, forcing millions of Brits to settle for zoom office parties, Christmas shopping online, and fewer guests at the dinner table.

As part of a weekend of National Bingo Day celebrations, Mecca Sheffield on Flat Street in the city centre is hosting Junemas on Friday, June 25, which they say will be “a unique Christmas event to reclaim last year’s celebration and to restore the thrill of moments spent together.”

Debbie Hercock, General Manager at Mecca Bingo Sheffield, said: “We are thrilled to host this special and exciting weekend of events, giving a chance to our customers to catch up on missed moments – Merry Christmas everyone!

"With the entire nation being in lockdown last Christmas, many did not get the chance to celebrate like they normally would, so we are determined to turn that into a nicer memory. And with National Bingo Day’s opportunity to win life changing jackpots, we can’t help but imagine what our customer’s next Christmas could look like! ”

Customers will be invited to get in a merry spirit and enjoy Mecca’s very own Christmas traditions with full Christmas decs, mince pies, Christmas cocktails and a best Christmas jumper competition.

Mecca says there will also be “Christmas crackers with plenty of secret Santa surprises and all of your favourite Christmas tunes.”

Finally there will be an all important bingo game in support of children’s charity, Variety.

Christmas really could come early with not one, but two guaranteed £50k National Game jackpots up for grabs leaving bingo fans wondering exactly what a £50k Christmas could look like.

In addition, everyone in the winning club will also win up to £100 each.

Mecca says it continues to employ extensive safety measures.

"The uniquely large and spacious bingo halls and lounges provide a reassuring way to socialise safely, with mask-wearing throughout the venues and hand sanitiser readily available,” a spokesperson said.
