An evening with Mecca Bingo & Jake Quickenden...


I have always been a huge fan of the Bingo, whether it is a fun game at the arcades, or online. However as much as I have wanted to go to a bingo hall, I have never had the chance. Therefore when I was invited by Mecca Bingo to attend the Drumchapel halls and get the chance to play a few games, then watch Jake Quickenden afterwards, I really couldn't say no....

I was actually quite nervous before attending, as much as I was excited to go, I had always heard that they were quite fast and most people who attended were professionals. However I was plesently surprised when I arrived and the lovely Charlotte sat us down. Their was such a mix of groups, from the elderly, to the young.... from single people to big groups, their really was a huge range of players, which made me feel a little better already. 


The hall was absolutely huge, so absolutely no problem finding a space too, especially with it being quite a busy night of playing! Charlotte, who was looking after us that night explained the rules and how to play and we were left too it. For me however food was a priority and I ordered a hotdog and a bottle of wine for the table. I was starving, so I dug right in (as you can tell because I was that excited I forgot to take a pic!) It was super affordable and really tasty... I am sure when I return that I will be sampling some more food on the menu.... the platters sounded amazing!


We played many games but never won a thing (I was rubbish!) I was amazed at how quickly I picked it up and got the hang of things. Their is also £1 during the breaks if you want to keep playing in between the main games too....

Once all the games were complete, it was time for the main show...

A DJ came on for about 30 mins before the main act to get the crowd warmed up and to give everyone a chance to get as close to the stage as possible. We took advantage during this time to order more drinks for the table. 

I was really excited to see Jake Quickenden play.... and by the sound of everyone else in the room I wasn't the only one. They had also done a raffle for a bunch of people to meet Jake too, and although I wasn't successful it was so nice to see all the people who had been picked get so excited!


Jake was on for about 30 mins and sang a range of songs, which everyone was joining in with, making for a great atmosphere! It really was an incredible night and for someone who had no idea what the night was going to have in store... I can honestly say I cannot wait to go back in the future!
