Vintage Slots on show at Whitley Bay Dome

Postby pennymachines » Wed Sep 08, 2010 10:23 pm

To coincide with the Centenary of The Dome at Whitley Bay, the building is being opened to the public as part of the the Heritage open days scheme. It will be open Thursday 9 Sept until Sunday 12 Sept, from 10.00 - 4.00 daily. An exhibition tracing the 100 year history of the Dome will feature archive film, display boards with memories and images through the decades. There will also be a small display of vintage amusement machines from the 1920s - 50s.
