Bongo’s Bingo is back!
Bank Holiday Sunday 30thAugust and Saturday 12thSeptember at the Virgin Money Unity Arena
With close to 2 million tickets sold, back in March Bongo’s Bingo was the leader of the experience economy, a phenomenon which started in Liverpool and was rapidlytaking over the world in close to 50 locations. And since then, as the world has been turned completely upside down during the Covid-19 pandemic, normality has been in very short supply for everyone.
Last week they announced two brand-new Bongo’s Bingo shows taking place in Gosforth Parkat the Virgin Money Unity Arena on Bank Holiday Sunday 30thAugust (1pm show start) and then Saturday 12thSeptember (7.30pm showstart)And now, general release tickets are on sale for the action at theUK’s first dedicated socially-distanced music venue.
Bank Holiday Sunday 30thAugust:
Jonny Bongo says: ““It’s been such a long time since we have done any shows due to everything that has happened, and now we are ready to come back to the north east and start again there. We want to make it really special and give everyone some big Bongo’s Bingo love in Newcastle. Just being able to have everyone together in this environment will be incredible, me and the boys are raring to go and the arena looks class. But we know how tough things have been too, it’s been such a crazy and surreal time for everyone. We have all been desperate to come back but only when it safe and right and this is the perfect place for us to do some shows as it is properly socially distanced which is great. We want to make it really special and give everyone some big Bongo’s Bingo love in Newcastle.”
This incredible setting just north of the city, with strict social-distancing measures and group viewing spaces, will host these two huge outdoor shows, some of the biggest the team have ever done. They mark a spectacular and much-needed summer return for anyone seeking a release from these unprecedented times, of something always immensely familiar, fun and fulfilling in a unique experience from start to finish.
The award-winning concept combines the much-loved quaint pastime of bingo with a mesmeric live show, crazy antics and weird and wonderful prizes which have helped create one of the most talked about nights out in the country. Bongo’s Bingo offers a night full of madness, mischief and shared euphoria, with dancing and cheering under one roof to hits from across the ages all night long – imagine N Trance’s Set You Freefiltered via S Club and Gerry Cinnamon, to en-masse crowd karaoke renditions of Total Eclipse of the Heart.
