On May bank holiday weekend, a mere three months away, Bongo’s Bingo will be hosting their biggest and possibly most ridiculous party at Manchester Central!

The XL version of the popular bingo piss up is returning, and it’s ready to take you right back to the 80s!

Get yourself a perm and a shell-suit, and host a pre-drinking party with an exclusive menu of Babycham, Shandy Bass and Advocaat as this will be a night of non-stop nostalgia.  

Across two evenings, there’ll be LOADS of 80s anthems, massive prizes, surprise guests and over 7,000 attendees ready to make a big fool of themselves and belt out killer 80s anthems from the top of their lungs.

After a massive success at events across the country, including sell-out Halloween parties in the city last year, Bongo’s Bingo is bringing back the 80s rave that promises to be bigger and better than ever!

The event combines the traditional pastime of bingo, EXACTLY the kind that your Nan still plays on a Saturday afternoon alongside a plate of fish and chips at Gala, with a truly bonkers live-show featuring wacky prizes and even some audience participation if you dare!

It’s even been graced by some iconic celebs in the past, too, including Nadine Coyle, Simon Webbe and Lee Ryan from Blue and the members of Boyzlife!

The two events this year will be held on Saturday 30th April and Sunday 1st May, falling right on bank holiday, so you’ll have more than enough time to pull yourself back together for work on Tuesday.

Tickets are almost sold out for the Saturday event, but you can currently buy a final release ticket for £27. Be quick! Early Bird tickets for Sunday are still available and you can grab one for £23 via the link below.
