Bongo’s Bingo, the rave-infused bingo event, that has rarely been out of the bingo news for the last year, finally received planning permission to host bingo events in the Baltic Triangle venue.
As reported by BingoDaily last week, an application to the local planning committee was submitted some months after Bongo’s Bingo moved out of the Camp and Furnace venue and into the new location called Content in the Baltic Triangle.
The move came as a bitter dispute emerged between Jonny Bongo, his partner Joshua Berke and the Camp and Furnace venue where the idea of Bongo’s Bingo was conceived. Now, as the legal battles continue, the new home of Bongo’s Bingo has finally received its planning application, having been approved by Liverpool Council a full six months after it opened.
Liverpool Councillors approved the operation usage of Content, a warehouse in the Baltic Triangle’s Cain’s Brewery Village, for five years.
Events at Content under the Bongo’s Bingo banner have been held there since August and the owners have been working closely with the local council to get planning permission.
Planning Permission Recommended
Planning officers had recommended the plans for approval in earlier documents, stating:
“The warehouse has been constructed and the use has commenced.
“The proposal is for the warehouse to operate as a multi-use space that offers music, concerts, a dance hall and bingo.
“The main event is Bongo’s Bingo, a twist on traditional bingo as it is provided alongside entertainment events which offer comedy, music, dancing and performances by featured guest artists.
“This is every Friday and Saturday night and on other special days such as bank holidays, occasionally.”
Although the legal battles continue, Bongo’s Bingo has a new approved home and with the court ruling due later in the year, the company’s events seem to be growing from strength to strength.
