Bongo’s Bingo is back in Leeds
Summer dates announced for Sat July 8th, Fri July 21st, Sat 12th and Sat 26th August at Canal Mills
Bongo’s Bingo is back with three July shows taking place at the amazing Canal Mills, with a series of shows taking place across Sat July 8th, Fri July 21st, Sat 12th and rounding off on Bank Holiday Sat 26th August.
The event’s success continues to evolve into a true phenomenon, with residencies now in Ibiza for the summer, Australia which sold out in record time and Dubai too, as well as continuing to spread even further across the UK. It’s already taken quite a journey – one including copious amounts of Coco Pops, audience heckling and unicorn toys – to get here, with plenty of rave classics, party anthems and power ballads in the mix, and there is plenty more very exciting news to come soon. The Leeds residency continues to create magic and mayhem each and every time, with Canal Mills packed to its rafters for what is fast becoming an indelible part of the UK’s cultural fabric.
In just over two thrilling, chaotic and dancing-on-the-tables years, Bongo’s Bingo features wild scenes taking place each night across the UK as the team move from city to city, re-shaping how people enjoy themselves and perhaps most importantly bringing back a sense of unadulterated fun and escapism to going out. The shows take place across the UK which continue to sell out in advance, with a vibrant mix of players flocking in from far wide for the riotous reinvention of a particularly unique fond British pastime, perhaps a little staid around the edges.
It’s true that Bongo’s Bingo has to be seen to be believed – the show mixes the traditional elements of bingo with dance-offs, rave intervals, plenty of heckling, audience participation, endless hands-in-the-air anthems and of course winning prizes too, from Henry Hoovers to actual cold hard cash. It’s a sublimely chaotic experience, and predictably unpredictable – no two shows are ever the same, yet there’s a familiar thread of distilled mayhem each and every time.
Co-founder Joshua Burke explains: “We are really happy to be offering some great weekend shows in Leeds this summer, so everyone in the city has a chance to come and play. It’s been an incredible last few weeks for us, everything from our 2nd birthday through to launching residencies in Australia, Ibiza and Dubai, and we have got lots more planned too to reveal in the coming months!”
