Bingo. Rave. Two ends of the spectrum of fine holiday fun and finally — finally — together as one.

Nan's Bingo is set to be a games night like you've never seen before. Part club, part rave, and, of course, part bingo night, this unlikely fusion event has been wildly popular in the UK since 2015. Now, courtesy of Nan's Bingo, the show is hitting the road in New Zealand with raves in Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin and Christchurch in July and August.

Patrons can expect an evening of debauchery, including dance-offs, lip sync battles, conga lines, air guitar competitions, tonnes of confetti and a loose kind of bingo that you definitely never played with your nan (well, maybe you have). The victorious players can win a range of absolutely ridiculous prizes. Just yell "bingo" and wait for the drop.

The Auckland event will take place at Galatos on Friday, 16 August, while Wellington's event is scheduled for Saturday, 24 August at Leroy's Bar. Both events commence at 8pm, though seating is unreserved so it's recommended to arrive early for a good seat. Tickets are available from
