The Right Up Our Street Bingo Bonanza!
It’s bingo – but not as you know it!
Throughout September Deirdre and Dale were out and about in Balby, Mexborough and Rossington gathering stories, asking questions and generally sticking their noses into everyone’s business. But it’s all for a good cause – the game of champions – bingo!
For this game of bingo is unlike any you will have ever played before. A game in which each and every ball isn’t just a chance for a Full House (there will be prizes) but an introduction to a local story, a challenge, a game, a short film, a sausage roll, or a guest appearance from a local legend.
Performed in a variety of venues over November this specially commissioned show by Nottingham theatre company Excavate was a charming and chaotic blend of club entertainment, pub quiz and theatre (and of course bingo). With musical accompaniment throughout this was a lively and highly entertaining show for people of all ages.
The Right Up Our Street Bingo Bonanza came to The Concertina Club in Mexborough, The Labour Club in Rossington and Woodfield Club in Balby. Each performance featured local stories and quizzes that tested the audience's local knowledge - in Rossington we were asked which shop some tasty sausage rolls had come from!
