In the 1950’s the Shipley family first started entertaining the crowds at showgrounds across the Midlands. The larger than life ‘Big Jim’ Shipley built up a mix of amusements, rides and traditional fairground attractions that proved a huge success.
The family business went from strength to strength and in the 1960’s and 70’s Big Jim’s eldest sons, Harry and Jon, entertained their customers in a different way by opening Amusement arcades and Bingo clubs throughout the country.
Fast forward to today and the Shipley Brothers operate three of the biggest and best bingo clubs in the UK. Named BJ’s Bingo in honour of their father ‘Big Jim’, their venues in Leigh, Birmingham and Reading are leaders in service, standards and facilities. Above all, BJ’s Bingo clubs offer BIGGER, BETTER BINGO!

It’s a lovely place and the toilets are lovely and clean and easy to get in and out. Food was excellent lovely and hot, nothing worse than cold food. The staff were friendly and helpful. Also, they have a chat room with machines, so people can still play bingo out there if they wish.
