What Is Bongos Bingo And Where Can You Get Tickets?

Molly Raby March 29, 2023

If you haven’t heard of Bongos Bingo, where have you been hiding? It is the new craze that has everyone from fresh students to music loving boomers grabbing tickets. Here is everything you need to know about Bongos Bingo and how you can snatch up some tickets for yourself.

What is Bongos Bingo?

Founded in 2015 by Jonny Lacey, Bongos Bingo is a modern take on the traditional form of bingo. It is a rave, mixed with dance-off intervals, audience participation and classic bingo. When you put it like that, what is not to love?

On their website, Bongos Bingo is described as, “a wild shared social extravaganza and a night of pure nostalgic escapism.”

If you are lucky enough to get one line, two lines or even a full house, there are an array of exciting (and odd) prizes on offer. From fluffy unicorns, Henry Hoovers, karaoke machines and even a cardboard cut-out of your favourite celebrities such as Jedward or Gail Platt.

If you are already kitted out with a Henry Hoover and Gail Platt shrine, then you will be pleased to know that there are also monetary prizes on offer. There are varying amounts for each game, going up to several hundred pounds! So it is well worth a try.


There are a range of Bongos Bingo events occurring throughout the UK this year. If you are open to any location, you can simply browse the website and find the best event for you.

However, if you are looking for events in a specific location, then you can check out specific places. You can select your desired location and find all the relevant events in that area. It’s as easy as that.

You can attend upcoming Bongos Bingo events in Birmingham, Leeds, York, Sheffield, Manchester, Aberdeen and many more locations. If you love bingo, or you simply want to try something different, you won’t be disappointed.
