Crossing bingo with a rave might seem like a bit of a wacky idea – and it is. But it’s a wacky idea that has found success in Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds, and now it’s Birmingham’s turn to enjoy the madness for one time only. This eccentric event breathes new life into British senior citizens’ game of choice, pumping out the best in bass music, hip hop and pop to a roomful of ravers scribbling out numbers on scraps of card in the hope of winning big. With prizes ranging from a brand new Porsche to a box of Coco Pops, Bongo’s Bingo is hosted by larger-than-life master of ceremonies Jimmy Bongo, famed for his quick wit and ability to think up hilarious put-downs faster than you can say ‘house’. A fusion of music, comedy and pure randomness, Bongo’s Bingo is an event that demands to be experienced.
