This weekend was a very special occasion for everyone here at BingoPort, as we marked ten years of rewarding bingo players. It’s hard to believe we’ve already been a community for a whole decade, but you know what they say: time flies when you’re having fun!
No birthday would be complete without a proper party—so, we decided to celebrate in style at the Village Hotel in Manchester. And, for such a grand occasion, just one night was never going to be enough. That’s why we planned a whole weekend of festivities and fun to bring together our members for a birthday to remember!
Plenty of our most dedicated players descended upon Manchester from October 6th–7th. The city had no idea what was about to hit it!
The madness started in earnest on Friday night, as the BingoPort crew sat down to a three-course evening meal.
After that, it was time for—what else?—a game of bingo!
The lovely Kaz (our chat moderator NuttyKaz) did the honours and called out the numbers for a cracking game. In real life as online, she certainly showed us all how to be the best bingo chat moderator!
As always, there were plenty of fabulous prizes up for grabs, including a Dolce Gusto coffee machine, a Hairy Bikers health grill, and much more!
In between all the excitement, there was just enough time to gather the gang together for a cheeky group photo.
On Saturday night, the enjoyment ramped up even further. As well as another lovely meal, the attendees were treated to a performance from the UK’s #1 ABBA tribute duo: Abba Glamma!
Whilst all our members were certainly getting into the seventies spirit, one member showed her devotion even more than most, as MissSixty23 arrived totally dressed for the part!
The music went down a treat with our members, with our fabulous CM H0TT0TTIE even being invited to join Agnetha and Anni-Frid on stage to sing Mamma Mia. Didn’t she do well?
With such a fun-filled atmosphere, it’s no wonder that the BingoPort nutters were tempted onto the dancefloor for a boogie!
All that remains now is to say thanks to the thirty-eight BingoPort members who came along this weekend! We had a wonderful time in Manchester celebrating bingo, BingoPort, and, of course, our amazing community. It’s always a joy to put on events that bring our members together and see the friendships that have formed through a shared love of bingo. Here’s to the first ten years—and to plenty more birthdays (and parties) in the future!
