If you’re not quite ready to embrace your local bingo hall, there’s another way that you can get out and about and still enjoy a fun game of bingo this summer.
Thanks to a range of entrepreneurial events companies going all retro, the UK will be hosting a series of drive-thru’s throughout July and August which will allow families, friends and couples to park up and experience some much-needed outdoor entertainment.
In Ireland, a company called Full Swing Entertainment has been offering drive-in hire both day and night. It supplies the bingo machine and books containing the numbers and projects the numbers onto a huge 40-foot screen. Customers can even book a bingo and cinema package that includes a fun game of bingo before sunset followed by a choice of musicals, paranormal or classic Disney films.
In England, Thornton Hall Country Park in Skipton has already hosted its first drive-in bingo event of the summer. After proving to be a big hit with visitors, it’s likely that it will be organising more to fit around its forthcoming drive-in movie nights.
A company called @TheDriveIn is also inviting cinema fans to park up and enjoy a host of drive-in experiences from 2nd July 2020.
The show will tour for 12 weeks across 11 cities including London, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Brighton, Southampton, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Birmingham and Manchester. The events will feature everything from silent car discos, live comedy to bingo games. Customers will even be able to order American-style meals via @TheDriveIn’s mobile app for delivery to their cars.
Finally, if you live in the Manchester area, you might want to grab tickets to Bumper Bingo at Eventcity. On Thursday, 30th July 2020, the venue will be filled with huge screens to ensure that everyone can enjoy a front-seat view. The sound will be broadcast via participants’ car radios so that come rain or shine, everyone gets to have a great time!
