Dabbers at the ready – Bongo’s Bingo is returning to Manchester this February with four weeks of bingo raving fun to brighten up the dreary winter month ahead.

It’s returning to one of Manchester’s most iconic venues, the Albert Hall, which is once again home to the bingo club night that will leave you wanting more.

Look up and see a balcony full of raving and misbehaving bingo revellers. Look down and see an army of table dancing bingo bad boys (and girls).

Look left or right to find your nearest bar, filling up on beers, wines, spirits, shots and just about anything else you can think of.

And then look straight forward to centre stage as the Bongo’s Bingo crew put on an unforgettable night that will make you cut up your Mecca Bingo membership cards the second you get home.

If you’re not too familiar with this latest bingo craze – where have you been hiding?

Bongo’s Bingo is an unadulterated night of immense fun, singalongs, false calls and unique prizes that you won’t find lying around any old bingo hall.

Previous events have seen guests walk away with everything from gigantic inflatable pokemon suits, double ended dildos and Henry the hoovers to cardboard cutouts of Gemma Collins and mobility scooters. And lets not forget about the huge cash prizes up for grabs, too.

Just try not to be that person in your squad that makes a false claim – because if you do, you’re guaranteed to never, ever forget it.

Quickly becoming the most talked about bingo night ever – not just in the UK, but around the world – Bongo’s Bingo started out in Liverpool in 2015 and has since branched out to festivals and events worldwide.

With four dates planned this February for all you Bongo’s Bingo loving Mancunians, make sure you mark Tues 12th, Thurs 14th, Sat 16th and Tues 19th off in your diaries.

And yes, you read it correctly. That means they’re throwing a huge Valentine’s Day special.

So if you’re a couple looking for a unique way to spend the romantic holiday – or you’ve asked someone out on a date for the occasion – what better way to spend it than getting drunk, dancing badly on tables and trying not to act too cringy?

And if you’re a singleton like me who would usually try to forget that the day even exists, why not head down with your mates? You never know – you might find your Valentine’s date for 2020.

Whatever your deal – escape all of the overpriced consumerism this V Day and keep it simple.

We imagine the prizes up for grabs on the night might be just what you need to carry on the celebrations when you go home – if you know what we mean.

Tickets for these events always sell out in advance, so it’s best to book ASAP to avoid disappointment.

Bongo’s Bingo is taking place on Tues 12th, Thurs 14th, Sat 16th and Tues 19th February at the Albert Hall, 27 Peter Street, M2 5QR. Doors open at 6pm – first game starts at 8pm.
