It took around 5 minutes for the first Bongo’s Bingo Brunch show at The Albert Hall to sell out.
Just 5 minutes of ticket-frenzied madness for Manchester to show how much it has missed the Coco Pops strewn bingo rave phenomenon, which is getting ready to return this summer to the city. And now there is a brand-new date to get set for.
Saturday 12th June is another mouth-watering Brunch special at the city’s iconic venue, with food and drink from midday to 2pm followed by Bongo’s Bingo 2pm – 5pm. Pizzas are supplied by local heroes Rudy’s Pizza.
Tickets go on sale from 6pm Thursday 13th May…
Jonny Bongo says: “Wow! This one sold out super fast. Our brunch shows are epic and Manchester is showing its huge appetite for them. We love the city so much and have a great affinity here, so being able to get some dates out means a lot. And we know it has been such a difficult time for so many and want to bring some smiles back and give everyone some much needed fun. It’s great to be coming back to Manchester after all this time.”
At the Brunch special expect a liberal allocation of celebrity cardboard cut outs, fluffy pink unicorns, crowd renditions of Mr Brightside, dance offs, many hands in the air moments and a mobility scooter thrown in for very good measure.
Bongo’s Bingo 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, with pre-pandemic close to 2m tickets sold and pre-pandemic taking place in 50 locations globally.
Bongo’s Bingo is a night full of madness, mischief and shared euphoria, with dancing and cheering to hits from across the ages all night long – imagine N Trance’s Set You Free filtered via S Club and Gerry Cinnamon, to en-masse crowd karaoke renditions of Total Eclipse of the Heart.
