★★★★★ Blingo – Hip Hop Bingo
A non-stop party megamix of hip hop bling and cheeky swagger!
Grandma Flash and her 87 year old Mr Lover Lover, Harry, set the tone for a night of high-octane hip hop hilarity. Leave your inhibitions in the Stables Market as you journey into the whirlwind of a night out that is BLINGO.
It’s loud, it’s brash, and you can win a lot of CASH (well, a case full of fake dollars anyway). The hosts take you on a nostalgic journey through 90s/2000s RnB and hype up the audience into a frenzy of desperate dabbing. Our hosts give energy, attitude and swagger to the proceedings and have their tongues firmly in cheek.
For the future though, it might have been nice to make slightly more of their unnamed female bingo babe, and perhaps ramp up the one liners a bit – but the visual gags are sublime.
The bingo itself is fast-paced, fun and has plenty of surprises, from big silly prizes to confetti explosions. Make sure you’ve got the numbers if you win though, as otherwise you’re declared a LOSER in front of the 300 strong crowd!
With crazy prizes and phat choons spun, this unstoppable party is a great night out for big groups. A little more space wouldn’t go amiss but the crammed-in nature forced us to meet new people!
Our 3 Top Tips
- Arrive early to get comfortable and don’t bring too much stuff or SUITCASES. It’s a packed night but full of fun people.
- Eat beforehand to line your stomach and give you the all-important BINGO STRENGTH.
- The lip sync is mega fun so put your name in the bag.
