A Ru Paul's Drag Race UK star is coming to Basildon for an alternative night out which promises to be "weird and wonderful".

Bada Bingo runs events up and down the UK in retro Buzz Bingo Halls.

The brand is now bringing its unique bingo rave to Basildon with Ru Paul's Drag Race UK star Cheryl Hole as the host.

Bada Bingo promises an alternative night out that’s different to anything else in the market with the Essex drag queen.

It will feature loud music, confetti and flashing lights as rave-goers will be playing for some hilarious prizes such as an inflatable cabbage costume.

There will be rave rounds, mass singalongs, confetti showers, and dance offs.

A spokesman for Bada Bingo said: “At Bada Bingo we are devoted to creating an experience that will have you laughing for days.

“We are all about creating a safe space for people to come and let their hair down, and live and laugh in the moment.

“We want to offer an alternative night out that is far from your Instragrammable destinations.

“We want people to leave with confetti in their hair and a story worth telling, rather than a picture for their Instagram”.

The event comes to Buzz Bingo in Basildon on September 23 and tickets start from £10.
