Liverpool’s fastest-growing nightlife event, Bongo’s Bingo, has announced four more dates over the festive period, due to high demand.

The popular night out – located in the Camp and Furnace, Baltic Triangle – has taken Liverpool, and subsequently the rest of the country, by storm since it began last year. Bongo’s Bingo is a modern twist on an old classic, which features spectacular prizes and liberal doses of alcohol and partying.

The extra dates over December comes as a response to tickets selling out almost instantly for the bingo, with eager customers having to book months in advance for a seat inside one of the city’s hottest attraction.

Jonny Bongo, the DJ and creator of the game, treats the crowds who have gathered to an alcohol-fuelled night of dancing, contests, and at the crux of it all – a good old-fashioned bingo session.

Whether it be raving on the long tables that stretch across the Camp and Furnace’s halls, to claiming prizes that range from the audacious to the amazing – a Mini Cooper and a trampoline, among others – those who come to play are guaranteed an unforgettable night.

The winners of the bingo even have to stand up on stage in front of the hundreds in attendance and compete in a dance-off for the top prize.

Joe Richmond, part of the team from the Baltic Triangle that helps run the event, believes it is no surprise that additional events were announced, due to its rise in popularity.

He told Liverpool Life: “When you actually see how busy it gets for yourself, then you quickly realise that it’s one of the best nights in Liverpool without a doubt.

“It’s such a great experience watching everyone getting up on the tables and having a rave, having a laugh and just enjoying themselves with no bother.

“There’s events happening abroad and across the country now and that’s because people who have come here and seen it for themselves have told their mates and it has just gone from there.”

The dates for the new events are December 28, 29, 30 & 31.
