The original bingo rave is a regular at the Boilershop in Newcastle where it often sells out, but Bongo’s Bingo has now announced a supersize show.

The award-winning phenomenon, which combines the traditional game of bingo with a rave, dancing, comedy prizes and big money prizes, is bringing two epic Disco Inferno XL shows to Newcastle for the very first time in June – and you and your mates could be there for free.

Following on from their sold-out XL spectaculars in Manchester, Bongo’s Bingo’s double whammy of super-sized dates take place at the Utilita Arena on Friday, June 17 and Saturday, June 18.

There's some madcap prizes up for grabs

This is Bongo’s Bingo amped up to the max for the North East, with thousands of players coming together at the arena.

Expect loads of classic 70s, 80s and 90s tunes, crazy production and massive prizes at the biggest parties Bongo’s Bingo has ever created for Newcastle, rewinding to a vintage era.

Fancy dress of course is very much encouraged but not compulsory.

The Newcastle host Mickey Pickles said: “We are so stoked to be bringing XL to Newcastle this summer. It’s basically Bongo’s Bingo on steroids – everything from the production to the prizes to the stage to the amount of people coming to these two shows - it’s going to be insane.

The prize is for you and five mates

"Disco Inferno is the theme so we are going to have wall to wall classics and sing-a-longs all night long. We really can’t wait for June 17 and 18.”

Bongo’s Bingo combines the much-loved quaint pastime of bingo with a wild live show, crazy antics and weird and wonderful prizes which have created the most talked about night out in the country, and spawned plenty of imitation nights.

Brace for a night full of madness, mischief and shared euphoria, with hits from across the ages all night long, such as N Trance’s Set You Free, tracks by S Club and Gerry Cinnamon, to renditions of Total Eclipse of the Heart.
