It's not your usual night out at the bingo
IT is billed as the antithesis to your typical night down at Gala or Mecca: this is Rebel Bingo, twisting the traditional game with discoballs, boom boxes and guitars.
"It's a young, loud, fun, quirky take on the game," says Sean Harwood from the team behind the club night that lands in Nottingham tonight.
"Rebel Bingo revolutionises the sleepy preserve of the over-60s, giving it a kaleidoscopic makeover," he explains.
"Two rounds of bingo led by charismatic hosts and glamorous callers are punctuated with drinking, dancing and the best dancefloor beats."

This hedonistic incarnation was "invented by accident when we were drunk" say founders Freddie Sorensen and James Gordon, whose first event was in the basement of a church hall in London. Rebel Bingo grew slowly throughout the capital, characterised by its secrecy. Attendees were warned that "if anyone asks, you are coming to a Neighbourhood Watch meeting".
Since then there have been events from Beijing to Brazil.
Rebel Bingo is hosted at the Rescue Rooms tonight from 8pm. £10 at the door. For more details go to www.rebelbingo.com.
