You'll be jumping and jiving all night long this New Year's Eve as Bongo's Bingo returns to Norwich to welcome 2020 in style.
The bingo rave club night that has been sweeping the nation launched at Epic Studios in Magdalen Streen this October and combines the game with catchy music, dance-offs and prizes ranging from Coco Pops to a Philip Schofield cardboard cut-out.
Bongo's Bingo, which also launched at Ocean Room in Gorleston-on-Sea earlier this year, will be hosting a special event in the city on Tuesday, December 31 and it will be packed with nostalgic tunes and festive fun.
There will also be large cash prizes up for grabs, confetti and rave intervals where dancing on the benches is encouraged to burn off those Christmas calories.
The event is held in cities across the UK, including London, Birmingham and Manchester, and was created by Jonny Bongo and Joshua Burke in April 2015 in Liverpool as they were bored with normal nights out in clubs and wanted to create a party experience.
