Designed by noted cinema architect Eric Norman Bailey of Maidenhead, the Palace remains virtually untouched in its current use as a bingo hall.

I used to attend bingo here in the early 70’s with my dad they used to have the organ played between bingo sessions. At one point I think they had a second organ installed. Some parts of the projection equipment were still in place but the picture heads and lamphouses had been removed(Kalee).
