If you’ve ever been lucky enough to attend Bongo’s Bingo, you’ll know how bizarre things can get. Turning the British pastime on its head, the immersive bingo rave includes rave rounds, dance-offs and crowd karaoke. You can win anything from giant pink unicorns to mobility scooters and – the ultimate prize – a Henry Hoover.
Since launching in 2015, Henry has become the defining prize at Bongo’s Bingo – with over 5,000 gifted out over the years. Those who have been down to the rave phenomenon will likely have heard chants of “Henry, Henry, Henry!” pouring out from the crowd. Especially when the hoover is paraded on stage to the masses. It’s bizarre, brilliant and very British.
Teaming up with Numatic – the makers of the iconic UK vacuum with a smile – Bongo’s Bingo now have created a special branded Henry for its upcoming shows. This one-of-a-kind limited-edition collaboration will only be available at Bongo’s Bingo throughout the coming weeks. Coming in the unique and vivid Bongo’s pink, this is your only chance to get your hands on one.
“We are absolutely buzzing to join forces with Henry vacuum and the team at Numatic – this is literally something I’ve dreamed of happening and I can’t believe we have our own limited edition Bongo’s Henry,” said Jonny Bongo, Bongo’s Bingo Co-Founder. “The reaction to Henry is always magical and in creating this exclusive one-of-a-kind unit, we now have an even more special prize to offer.”
“For me and the team, it’s absolutely bonkers to see this become real. I vividly remember back in our earliest days in Liverpool buying the first Henry to give away, and having this feeling people would love it – and from the room going wild then to the present, the passion for Henry at our shows keeps getting bigger and madder.”
Bongo’s Bingo is back at The Forum in Birmingham this October. Experience lashings of magic, madness and mayhem on October 7 and 20, plus a big Halloween special on October 28. Expect en masse karaoke, plenty of audience participation, maddening moments, and so much more for one of the most outlandish afternoons you’re ever likely to experience.
Henry vacuum’s spokesperson adds: “We know our customers choose Henry because he’s fun, stands out from the crowd and is fantastic value. We always have lots of offers to collaborate, but when we heard Bongo’s Bingo story and how Henry was already so popular as a prize, we knew this was something different.”
“When we began working with the Bongo’s team, it was clear it was exactly what visitors loved about the Bongo’s Bingo experience and why their audience loved Henry. This is an exciting partnership between two very distinct British brands. Jonny Bongo himself pitched in at our UK factory, in Somerset to help with the first Bongo’s Henry vacuum coming off our production lines.”
