London is a great city with a whole host of activities. It is home to just about any hobby you can think of, including the 1530s game of bingo that has stood the test of time and remained a popular pastime.
While traditional bingo is played with someone on a microphone reading out the numbers of balls popping out of a bingo machine, there are quite a few twists to how people play bingo. In this guide, we are going to look at some of London’s most popular Bingo events and how each one has reinvented the game to suit their theme.
