Bongo’s Bingo is celebrating moving house with an appearance from Kelis
This summer, an innovative purpose-built venue is opening in the Cains Brewery Village and it will be the new home for our beloved Bingo’s Bingo.
Content is a brand-new project which will revolutionise the bustling area of Liverpool, continuing the Baltic Triangle’s ongoing regeneration.
Featuring a dedicated indoor space with a standing capacity of 2,000 and seated 1,200, alongside a shipping container village to be later built around the philosophy of Music, Art, Drinking and Eating: MADE, Content is an inclusive community-focused social space serving the entire locality day and night.
Content will very proudly be the brand-new and exclusive home of Bongo’s Bingo. Debuting at the venue along with the irrepressible host Jonny Bongo himself is by far the biggest ever star to grace the stage for the ground-breaking global phenomenon – the sensational Kelis is making a very welcome return for the grand opening on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th August.
When Jonny Bongo and Joshua Burke created Bongo’s Bingo back in April 2015, they never foresaw American superstars dropping in to join them to party. And yet incredibly Kelis is back again in Liverpool at Bongo’s Bingo. Years of chart dominating songs and thrilling, boundary pushing music has resulted in millions of albums sold and numerous top 10 hits. She has released six albums, won Brit, Q, and NME Awards, and been nominated for two Grammy Awards. Kelis has toured every corner of the world, performed at every major festival, and shared the stage with the world’s top artists, and alongside her music she is also a Le Cordon Bleu trained chef. Jonny himself is hosting all 8 shows throughout August, with more dates to be announced soon for September and into the autumn.
The focus of Content is on a complete customer experience from start to finish. From the ground up everything has been covered, with efficient service, quality facilities and the best hand-picked staff throughout. Content is investing heavily in all aspects of production and sound with state-of-the-art facilities. The venue will also feature a calendar of regular and bespoke shows, gigs, events and markets from some of the region’s taste-making pioneers and community-led projects to be announced later during the project.
Coming later alongside the new venue space, part of Content will be created entirely from reconditioned shipping containers, and feature some of the region’s leading independent restaurants and bars.
