Huge news for all you Bongo’s Bingo-loving Mancunians.

The popular bingo rave sensation that has taken over Manchester’s Albert Hall for the past 5 years has some massive changes coming!

This March, Bongo’s Bingo XL will move into the stunning Manchester Central as the rave bingo brand goes extra large following its massive success around the globe.

And that’s not all. The club night’s new concept will see a double-date weekender take over the new venue which has a seated capacity of 3000 – more than triple the capacity of its current location.

If you thought Bongo’s Bingo was fun, just wait to see what the team have in store for you at their new XL events.

Featuring much more enhanced visual and audio production as well as even bigger and better prizes than we’ve ever seen before, event organisers are pulling out all the stops to ensure this is the largest event ever to be hosted by the bingo rave night in the city.

To celebrate the bingo night going XL, the team have invited some huge VIP guests along for the weekend.

Both Simon Webbe and Lee Ryan from noughties boy band Blue – one of the UK’s most successful boy bands ever – will be joining double-date weekender.

The boys sold over 16 million albums and 30 million singles worldwide and have since appeared on numerous screens and stages around the world – with Lee most recently starring on BBC soap EastEnders.

The boys have collaborated with huge names including Sir Elton John, Stevie Wonder and Lionel Richie – and now they’re coming to Manchester to give us all some major throwbacks with some of their top tunes.
