Everyone’s guilty pleasure has had an upgrade like no other. Gone are the days of dingey bingo halls as Bingo Academy heads to its new home at The Kitty Hawk. Moments away from Liverpool Street, bingo-enthusiasts and novices have the chance to escape the cold, enjoy posh bingo food, flamboyant drinks whilst dabbing away for the most ridiculous but lavish prizes of them all.
It’s not often the words ‘posh’ and ‘bingo’ are uttered in the same sentence - but the experts at Bingo Academy have decided it high time that all changed. From their previous seasons at Mecca Camden and The Vaults, it has turned up a notch.
Visitors will head down to the luxury bingo basement at The Kitty Hawk, with the chance to hone their rather marvellous (or not) dabbing techniques. Feel classy whilst sipping on a Pornstar Martini, enjoy the finger licking good menu with Kellogg’s Fried Chicken and Crackling with Sour Apple and Kimchi and be beastly when someone does a wrong call. Guaranteed to take visitors on a journey of major ups and downs while pushing through the intense and emotional bingo training camp, everyone will leave feeling elated and full of joy.
Founded by Freddie Sorensen, co-founder of Rebel Bingo, Bingo Academy wants to ‘Make Bingo Great Again’. Whether it be in a traditional bingo hall or an upscale bar, the aim is to empower a new generation with the skills and confidence to fully enjoy this great British pastime across London. Even the most inexperienced players will leave with cat-like bingo reflexes.
Bingo Academy at The Kitty Hawk is running on Fridays and Saturdays until 15th December. Early bird tickets start at £10 and are available here
