Bongo’s Bingo
The UK phenomenon we revealed a couple of issues ago has come to the UAE. Born in Liverpool, Bongo’s Bingo has since sold out across eight cities in the UK with its heady mix of bingo, club vibe and audience interaction. Jonny Bongo himself will be flying over to host the party in Media City and there are plenty of prizes to be won. Looks like the kind of mental night out that could become a fixture here.
