Bongo's Bingo, the legendary rave-infused bingo events, is set to make its debut in Rochester, Kent in December.
Hosting the popular evening of dance-offs, wacky prizes, hardcore techno and the occasional game of bingo is the Casino Rooms in Blue Boar Lane, Rochester. Kent's largest nightclub which first opened it's doors in 1992 is to play host to Britain's biggest rave event which as well as playing up and down the country has also featured in Australia, Ibiza, and Dubai.
“This is Bingo”
Aaron Stone, the Casino Rooms owner said of the Medway first:
“I have had my eyes on Bongo’s Bingo for a while and I have witnessed it live myself.
“I have spent a lifetime in entertainment, putting on thousands of shows, nights and events and I can honestly say that Bongo’s Bingo is one of the slickest, most professional and most fun nights out I have had.
“It is non-stop laughs, dancing, mickey taking and of course bingo. When I saw it live, I didn’t even want to go to the toilet in case I missed something.
“Tickets went on sale yesterday and are almost sold out already – it’s just crazy.
“This is bingo, but not as we know it. This is as far away from a group of lovely senior ladies wearing raincoats, drinking tea and playing bingo under fluorescent lighting, as you can possibly get.
“I contacted Bongo’s personally and said they needed to come and see Casino Rooms and that we could do an awesome job of hosting such an event.
“It has taken a very long time to get this set up. There are very large, complex and expensive technical elements to this huge production, which not many venues would be able to comply with, but we have pulled it off and it’s a go.
“We are already finding customers are booking to bring not only their friends, but their mums and in some instances, their grandmothers. It’s a family party.”
Tickets for the Bongo's Bingo evening on Saturday 14th December went on sale yesterday (Tuesday 22nd) and expected to sell out fast. Doors open at 5.30 pm with the first game starting at 7.30 pm. Any ticket holders wanting to continue the revelries once the Bongo's Bingo event has finished will be given free entry to the Casino Room's late night club/disco.
Tickets for the Rochester event are available from the Bongo's Bingo website.
