People can enjoy a great night out as Disco Bingo returns to Southport this May!

This special event will take place at Victoria Park in Southport on Friday, 13th May, raising funds for Queenscourt Hospice and the Southport Flower Show charity.

The evening is full of lively music and good-natured banter provided by comedian and presenter Brendan Riley, with prizes available on the night.

The fun takes place in the luxury heated marquee at Victoria Park, with tickets just £10 each, available from the website: or phone: 01704547147.

Brendan Riley said: “We are delighted to be working with Southport Flower Show again, staging a special Disco Bingo night at the park.

“Many people don’t realise that Southport Flower Show is a charity. The charity maintains Victoria Park at no cost to the taxpayer, for the benefit of people from across the UK. It also stages the annual Southport Flower Show, which is the largest independent flower show in the country.

“The Covid pandemic has battered Southport Flower Show over the past couple of years, with the event not having been able to take place since 2019, which has left a big impact on its funding.

“Southport Flower Show is a great local charity, and it needs our support!

“We are pleased to also be raising funds for Queenscourt Hospice.

“This is a local charity that provides support for the people of West Lancashire, Southport and Formby. It cares for patients with serious illnesses, enabling them to achieve the best possible quality of life at each new stage.

“The hospice receives less than a fifth of its costs from the NHS and the rest of the money comes from charitable donations that help keep the hospice running.

“We organised a Disco Bingo show at Victoria Park last year and it went down really well. We are really looking forward to welcoming people to enjoy this one.
For anyone who has not tried Disco Bingo before – you are in for a memorable time.

Brendan said: “Disco Bingo is good, clean, honest fun!

“Get your dabbers ready and come down for a great night out!

“Disco Bingo is a dance along, sing along, interactive bingo night, while winning some great prizes!

“It is exactly what it says on the tin; a full night of traditional style Disco and Bingo but with a modern twist!

“Disco Bingo is guaranteed to get the whole room up and dancing, classic disco hits are triggered when certain bingo numbers are called.

“It is suitable for people of all ages, from 18 to 80.”

The show starts at 8pm, doors 7pm.

Southport Flower Show General Manager Alan Adams said: “We are so grateful to Bren and Val from Southport Comedy Festival for putting this event on for us.

“All proceeds will go into the pot to maintain our wonderful park and also towards Queenscourt Hospice.

“I would urge people locally to please support us and buy a ticket.”
