If you’ve ever spotted someone stumbling toward a bus stop in the early hours of the morning, their body dotted with multicoloured blobs of ink and a cheeky grin splashed across their face, chances are they’ve spent the evening at Rebel Bingo.
What on earth is Rebel Bingo? It’s essentially the same as normal bingo, only with loads more booze, filthy number calling (‘Cum on my tits – it’s sixty-six!’), amazing spot-prizes and a seriously lax policy toward the mis-use of bingo dabbers. Okay, so nothing like normal bingo at all.
Having begun life in 2009 as a semi-clandestine club night in church halls and the like, Rebel Bingo has since grown up to become one of the city’s most outrageously awesome parties, taking over big, big venues (including actual bingo halls). Given that it’s sort of a Big Deal these days, tickets regularly sell out quicker than you can think of something rude to say about the number 69, so we’d advise that you pounce on this new batch of tickets, pronto. The nights take place between September and December in Camden and Clapham, and although the super-cheap pre-sale tickets are all gone, there’s still a good few £8 earlybird tickets to be had. Fans of bingo and bawdiness, you know what to do.
September 19–December 18. Limited earlybird tickets £8, standard tickets £16. Mecca Bingo Camden and Clapham Grand. Find out more and book at rebelbingouk.tunestub.com.
