With a national lockdown keeping our bingo halls shut, and COVID-19 restrictions most likely to continue into winter, Christmas will be very different for many of us. Our bingo playing activities will be certainly restricted.
We have some good bingo news to report. The Parking Lot Social Winter Festival has announced a series of dates spread across the UK from the 2nd December right through till the 30th of December. So, while many of us will have to turn to some online bingo for some bingo fun, we've now got the opportunity to enjoy our favourite game and all from the comfort of your own car.
Run by XL Event Lab, the fun-filled event features a whole host of family and adult orientated events including Christmas Car-A-Oke, quizzes, a silent disco, of course, some bingo and much more.
Set against a backdrop of a 60 feet high rainbow-coloured Christmas tree, the completely contactless event (you are in your car the whole time) is according to government restrictions and a full refund is guaranteed should the event not go ahead due to any change in government policy.
There really is fun for all the family at The Parking Lot Social Winter Festival. When it comes to bingo, it is double the fun. During the day, there is a party bingo which is great for all the family. Then, in the evening, amongst The Big Christmas Party and Santa’s Silent Disco, there is some drag bingo. Double the bingo fun!
Christmas in Style
John Kinnersley, COO at XL Event Lab said:
“If someone had said to us we’d be planning a socially distanced drive-in Christmas party at the start of 2020, we would never have believed them.”
“This year has been a huge strain for anyone working in the arts and events industry, so we want to do everything in our power to showcase how we need our comedians, actors, musicians and film-makers now more than ever.”
“This event is designed to give people something fun and light-hearted to look forward to amongst all this uncertainty, and we can’t wait to see everyone coming together in spirit and celebrating Christmas in style.”
