A night of bingo with a twist is coming to Margate – and organisers say: “Leave your nan at home for this one.”
Bongo’s Bingo starts out as your normal bingo night – pens, books, numbers – but then turns into a rave and heads-down game of bingo, with dance-offs, rave intervals, plenty of heckling, audience participation and countless hands-in-the-air anthems.
Expect big cash prizes as well as other, stranger, winnings along the lines of a fluffy toy or Henry Hoover, but be warned, you may have to take part in a dance off to get them!
Bongo’s Bingo, created by businessmen Jonny and Josh and hosted by Jonny Bingo and his entourage, who started off touring the UK but now are in demand in places as far flung as Australia, Dubai and Ibiza.
A diverse crowd flocks to Bongo’s Bingo not just for a night of incredible fun, singalongs and false calls, but also for nostalgia, dancing on tables and the chance to win a pink unicorn, the Henry Hoovers, boxes of Coco Pops and life-size cardboard cut outs, to big cash prizes.
Top tip – Go in all out glitter wear, expect drinks, tunes, table dancing and outrageous fun.
Bongo’s Bingo is coming to Margate Winter Gardens on Friday, July 13 from 8pm to 11pm. It is an over 18s night only.
