A few weeks ago, an invite landed into my inbox to a ‘Secret Blogger Event’, it all sounded very exciting and I accepted straight away. I eagerly awaited the arrival of the invitation in the post, and even got out of bed early to collect it when I missed the postman! A black envelope contained a black piece of card and a UV pen, which showed up the time and location of the event, with more details on the underside. We were invited to Ladbrokes #LetsGlow Bingo. If I’m honest, I wasn’t sure what to make of bingo, as it’s only something I’ve played at a retirement home, with one of my elderly neighbours years ago and the bingo playing stereotype being that of a lady of a certain age. Nevertheless, I thought why not, and sent my RSVP.
I am so pleased that I went. We arrived at 6pm at The Belgrave Music Hall, and made our way upstairs. We were greeted by India, who presented each of us with 4 drinks tokens each and invited us in. We entered a darkened room, with UV lights shining, lighting up confetti on the floor, mason jars filled with tonic water (who knew this glows under UV!?) and made our way into the back room, where the bar was located. We had a good old chinwag, before I decided to be the daring person who went first to have her face painted, as soon as the other bloggers saw how talented the lady offering face painting was, she soon had a queue, it just shows; it only takes one.
