Carboot Disco Bingo
This September, to mark Heritage Open Days (11 – 20 September), Culture Weston and Theatre Orchard are bringing free entertainment and unique experiences to the streets and shoreline of Weston-super-Mare.
In keeping with the ‘Hidden Nature’ theme of this year’s Heritage Open Days, the Weston events will showcase natural beauty spots and reveal stories and history to celebrate the town’s rich heritage.
‘Carboot Disco Bingo’ will bring together two popular family activities, bingo and disco dancing, in a special, socially distanced version of this popular, interactive extravaganza. With two performances at 1pm and 3pm, ‘Carboot Disco Bingo’ provides classic, seaside entertainment and features feel good pop tracks from the 60s and 70s when Weston’s golden pavements were trodden by the likes of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
A collaboration between artist Megan Clark-Bagnall and Jasmine Loveys, players cross the numbers off the bingo card and learn the disco dance moves attributed to each number drawn throughout the game, in a part dance lesson, part bingo performance guaranteed to be lots of fun.
Please note that this event is free and will need to be booked – we have pods that will hold up to 4 people from the same household (One ticket = one pod for up to 4). There will also be a limited number of tickets available on the day.
This will be socially distanced and organised according to Government guidelines, with marshalls in place to ensure public safety. The events are also subject to change according to the Covid-19 advice in place at the time.
