Junemas will take place on Friday June 25, a is unique Christmas-themed event.

2020 saw the cancellation of many Christmas traditions, with people instead settling for zoom office parties, online shopping, and fewer guests at the dinner table.

As part of a weekend of National Bingo Day celebrations, Mecca customers across the UK will see Christmas come early next week.

This will be followed by a summer of missed moment events in Mecca clubs.

At Junemas, customers will have the opportunity to get in a merry spirit and enjoy Mecca’s very own Christmas traditions with decorations, mince pies, Christmas cocktails and a best Christmas jumper competition.

There will also be crackers, plenty of secret Santa surprises and festive tunes.

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

Junemas marks the start of a weekend of activities, as the UK’s first ever National Bingo Day takes place on Sunday June 27, celebrating all things bingo across hundreds of bingo clubs in the UK.

Christmas really could come early with two guaranteed £50k national game jackpots up for grabs and everyone in the winning club will also win up to £100 each.

A Mecca Bingo spokesperson 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! ”

Mecca continues to employ extensive safety measures.
