We get locked down, but we Get Up Again!
Rock and Roll Bingo has become one of the on-trade’s favourite entertainments. The game is a proven traffic-builder that’s fun for customers of all ages to play and easy for pubs to host. Just as importantly for post-lockdown trading, it’s completely Covid-safe: customers play on their phones, at their table, with no need for a host in the pub, or pens and paper.
