Bongo’s Bingo’s 90s special in Newcastle

Bongo’s Bingo’s 90s special in Newcastle

The 90s action takes place on Friday 2nd February at Boiler Shop and further shows are announced for the month

The 90s was an epoch-defining and seemingly halcyon period.

From the Spice Girls to Nintendo 64s and from Trainspotting to the battle of Britpop, and let’s not forget lots of double denim, Friends and playing Snake on a Nokia 3310. This truly was the era to end all eras. Tamagotchi? Check. Sunny D (by the bottle)? Check. Acid house? Check. Penalty misses? Check. The end of Seinfeld? Check. Enriched now with oodles of accrued nostalgia, just to re-live some of its peaks would be a salve for the modern soul. But fear not, because the 90s is what Bongo’s Bingo knows how to celebrate in the finest of styles at Boiler Shop.

That’s right, it’s time again to get the glow sticks primed, dig out the neon face paint and don some suitably baggy jeans as Bongo’s Bingo winds the clock back to the glorious 90s and the vibrant magic of that delectable decade in Newcastle on Friday 2nd February. The 90s special will feature the biggest anthems, amazing themed prizes, the rave round to end all rave rounds and all of the usual magic and mayhem, whilst dancing to the biggest belters with sensational en-masse sing-a-longs from this quintessentially vintage era.

Tickets are on sale now from:

There are further shows on Friday 16th, Saturday 17th and Friday 23rd February.

Jonny Bongo, Bongo’s Bingo’s co-founder, says: “We absolutely love the 90s at Bongo’s Bingo and it’s the defining decade which underpins the heart of our shows. So February is going to be packed with even more nostalgia – from peak time anthems to sing-a-longs to absolute classics from those magical years on top of everything we usually do. It’s going to be class at Boiler Shop in Newcastle.”

Bongo’s Bingo is the most talked about night out in the country. The original bingo rave phenomenon has rejuvenated a quintessentially quaint British pastime featuring nostalgia-soaked revelry, rave rounds, dance-offs, en masse Karaoke, crazy prizes including bespoke pink Bongo’s Henry Hoovers, giant pink fluffy unicorns and much more in a dose of pure and unadulterated escapism. There’s truly nothing else like it, just ask Samuel L Jackson.
