Bingo Lingo is a fun game of chance harnessing the nations love for Bingo. Played on oversized Bingo cards it’s a chance for everyone to get involved. Beryl and Cyril are your compares for the game and they love the joy Bingo brings to many. It’s this enjoyment that they want to share with you in the hope to make Bingo an official Paralympic sport.
Bingo Lingo is a game for everyone, where disability politics meets cheeky end of the pier humour. A reinvention of a great British tradition. So it’s eyes down for a game like you’ve never played before.

Bingo Lingo is a fun self-contained outdoor game of chance which aims to harness the nations love for Bingo. This joyous, uproarious outdoor participatory performance involves audience interaction and compared by Bingo lovers, Beryl and Cyril.
Created and performed by Disabled artists the show’s inspired by and pokes fun at the current attitude towards disabled people, from ‘Superhuman’ to so-called ‘benefit scroungers.’ The reinvention of this classic British tradition connects with non arts audiences through the use of creative aesthetics of access, from BSL inspired participatory dance routines to ‘in character’ touch tours and audio description embedded within the script.
Bingo Lingo’s first phase of development in 2016 was possible thanks to support from Greenwich and Docklands Festival and the Mayor of London’s Liberty Festival.
