Live Bingo Madness to Return as Nightclubs Reopen

Companies like Bingo Loco and Bongo’s Bingo have already organised events that will take place in entertainment venues such as nightclubs this summer. With no limits on visitor numbers and social distancing, bingo fans are likely to be overwhelmed by the variety of events on offer over the coming months.

Whether you’re feeling nervous or excited about the impending lifting of lockdown restrictions in England on Monday, 19th July 2021, there’s no denying that the date will massively help many businesses, including nightclubs and bingo halls.

What’s happening on July 19th?

As it stands, the UK government has confirmed that ‘Freedom Day’ will now be going ahead as planned on 19th July. However, the date applies to England only and ministers will not be drawn on whether some restrictions may have to be reimposed when the next review takes place in mid-August.

Almost all legal restrictions on social contact will cease, although some guidance (such as wearing face masks in enclosed public places) will remain.

For hospitality and entertainment venues, this means that the 1m-plus rule will be removed and they will no longer have to limit the number of people who can enter the premises.

The 19th of July is also the date that nightclubs will finally be able to reopen for the first time since March 2020. However, the government is encouraging them to use vaccine passports as part of their social responsibility measures.

What does this mean for bingo players?

Apart from being able to sit together with as many friends as you like in bingo halls, bingo fans will also be able to attend special events, and live bingo event organisers such as Bingo Loco are already planning for a belated summer celebration.

For example, The Talk nightclub in Norwich will play host to Bingo Loco’s August Bank Holiday Special on Friday, 27th August 2021.

The “bingo rave” will include live DJs, confetti shows, hilarious hosts and plenty of “bingo madness”. Audience participation will also be encouraged. So, expect conga lines, lip sync battles and dance-offs. There will be some wonderful and weird prizes to play for too such as international holidays and lawnmowers.
