Bongo’s Bingo announce Bongo And The Beast Christmas dates

The legendary Liverpool night out has revealed their ambitious plans for Christmas 2017. 

Everybody’s favourite night out and global scouse export Bongo’s Bingo has revealed their 2017 Christmas plans in all their glory – Bongo And The Beast.

The bingo rave will return to its home at the Camp and Furnace for a 19 night run of shows starting on November 30th and ending with a New Years Eve extravaganza. It’s a feat that most events could only dream of and one that takes a true phenomenon like Bongo’s to achieve.

If last years festive edition is anything to go by (from what memory remains) then you can expect the usual amount of chaos and mayhem, with a not so subtle amount of Christmas cheer slammed in for good measure. And of course, it’s not really Christmas without some special guests…

Bongo And The Beast will see both S Club and N Trance join Johnny and his team for their panto inspired shows. A Bongo’s fave S Club were one of the biggest bands pop bands of the 90s/00s (as we all can recall a little too well after half a dozen shots) and N-Trance the band behind several huge tunes of the same era including the biggest selling dance record of 1995, Set You Free. Proper music for boogieing aloft a table.

N Trance will be performing on Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd and Saturday 16th of December with S Club appearing all all other Bongo And The Beast dates.

Joshua Burke, Bongo’s Bingo co-founder, says: “We are coming back even bigger this Xmas for the panto season, with Bongo And The Beast! It’s something which has come together perfectly, with S Club and N Trance joining us to make this really special. It feels a bit strange announcing Xmas shows in August, but we want to get this out nice and early and hope everyone can get tickets. We are hoping to announce further panto dates in other locations too, so watch this space!”

The demand for tickets for Bongo’s Bingo shows no sign of slowing down (having recently sold out shows in Australia, Dubai and Ibiza!) so expect several thousands of punters ready at their keyboards tonight to get their hands on Christmas’ hottest ticket of 2017.

It really is the most fun you can have with your clothes on, and even that’s kind of optional. So grab some of the lingering sceptics and drag them along to the night they’ll be talking about for the whole of 2018. You won’t regret it!

Tickets for Bongo And The Beast go on sale at 6pm on Monday 7th August 2017. Visit for more information.
