Singer Nadine Coyle is the star guest at Bongo’s Bingo St. Patrick’s Weekender which will take place at the O2 Academy in March.

And as well as a feast of Girls Aloud classics, showgoers can also look forward to a night filled with Coco Pops, Henry Hoovers, dance-offs, mobility scooters, pink fluffy unicorns – as well as games of bingo.

A spokesman said: “One of Bongo’s Bingo favourite times of the year has just passed – that’s right, all of the Xmas excess and glittery revelry is now gone – so attention has turned to another most splendid celebration already on the horizon. That’s right, the St Patrick’s Weekend is back.

Nadine Coyle is performing at Bongo's Bingo in Sheffield.

“And helping to add an extra dose of magic across the fabled Guinness-infused shenanigans, there is a true sensational special guest joining in the Bongo’s Bingo madness once more.”

Nadine, who rose to fame in the early 2000s as a member of Girls Aloud and is now a solo artist, will be dipping into her back catalogue at the March 20 show.

Bongo’s Bingo is an outrageous combination of a crazy live show, an all-inclusive party and heads-down game of bingo which takes place around the UK and also in Dubai, Australia, Ibiza and France.

The spokesman added: “The traditional and very much loved quaint pastime is completely spun on its head and turned inside out again, and whilst bingo is still the very core of the show, players are plunged into a crazy few hours of pure escapism.

“Rave rounds, dance offs and insane prizes – think fluffy pink unicorns, Henry Hoovers, mobility scooters and wacky waveys - are just a few of the things setting Bongo’s Bingo apart from the average night out down at the bingo hall.”

Tickets go on sale from 6pm today on the Bongo’s Bingo app, then any remaining tickets from www.bongosbingo.co.uk on January 10 from 6pm.

Doors open 6pm – first game starts 8pm.
