MECA originally opened as The Regent Theatre in 1929. The Art Deco style building has seen many transformations over the years. In 1952 it was taken over by the Gaumont Theatre and then changed again in 1963 to an Odeon cinema.
It was later transformed into a bingo hall, which after 30 years, as MECCA bingo, finally closed its doors in 2008. After 2 years of sitting vacant the building was re-opened in December 2010 as MECA.
Located in the centre of Swindon, MECA is close to Swindon Train Station and served by several bus routes. Its convenient location makes it easy for your guests to reach, making MECA the perfect venue for your event.
