Bongo's Bingo at South Bank Leeds with So Solid Crew - Thurs 12th October.png

Bongo’s Bingo are very proud to reveal a one-off show in Leeds taking place at the city’s stunning new venue, South Bank, on Thursday 12th October.

The industrial setting will host one of Bongo’s Bingo’s biggest shows of 2017, with a specially themed night of merriment and magic for Oktoberfest; expect plenty of steins, a liberal dose of false calls, plentiful lederhosen and clinking glasses.

And in keeping with Bongo’s Bingo’s select shows with shows guests, this event is set to be a real classic: So Solid Crew are the famed hip-hop collective who helped to introduce their sound to the UK masses, with their fusion of garage, grime and hip-hop bringing them a number one slot with 21 Seconds as well as a BRIT Award. Expect plenty of mayhem on the stage and on the dance floor.

In just two and a half years the phenomenal Bongo’s Bingo has spread across the four corners of the UK, bringing riotous magic and mayhem everywhere it travels. The shows have been the catalyst for a cultural shift in the spectrum of night life across the country, one which has seen people across a wildly diverse demographic flocking to Bongo’s Bingo not just for a night of incredible fun, singalongs and false calls, but something much more - for escapism, for nostalgia, for dancing on tables, for an experiential adventure and also yes, for the chance to win a pink unicorn amongst many other prizes at South Bank.

It’s hard to capture the unique mix of everything that happens at Bongo’s Bingo – it’s partly a show, partly a rave, partly an experiential odyssey and very much an amazing night of bingo as its frantically beating heart. 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, countless hands-in-the-air anthems and of course the chance to win prizes too, from Henry Hoovers, boxes of Coco Pops and life-size cardboard cut outs, to actual cold hard cash. 

Bongo’s Bingo now takes place in many main cities, with sold out shows at Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds, to London, Birmingham and Newcastle, to Preston, Blackpool and Sheffield. This summer, they have launched residencies in Dubai, Ibiza, and two tours across Australia whose shows sold out in record time. Plans are already happening for new locations across Europe as the fervent mania continues to reach out across the world.
