Sir Paul McCartney's 80th Birthday
Here’s something you don’t see every day, Mecca Bingo changing their signage in honour of someone’s Birthday, Sir Paul McCartney’s Birthday. Liverpool residents got a huge surprise when the bingo hall in Knotty Ash changed its name from Mecca Bingo to Macca Bingo overnight, to celebrate the Beatles 80th birthday.
The octogenarian even had an invitation from the club to come and call the numbers, but we suspect he may be busy partying in New York. Liverpudlians will be able to witness the new logo for one week only, before it reverts to its original form.
Lucy Coy, General Manager for Mecca Bingo Knotty Ash, commented on the change: “We can’t wait to see our customers’ faces when they see the Macca Bingo logo this weekend. Sir Paul is such a national treasure, so we’re delighted to celebrate his special birthday and landmark performance with a rebrand in his honour. Sir Paul, if you’d like to take over the microphone from one of our callers, we’d love to see you!”

What a lovely thing to do, but I doubt he will even hear about it. Could you imagine him rocking up to a Mecca Bingo hall to call the numbers? I highly doubt it....
