It’s really happening: the collaboration everyone’s been waiting for has officially come to life, and Bongo’s Bingo ravers can now win a branded Henry vacuum. Bongo’s Bingo has teamed up with Numatic, resulting in some brand-new Henrys being manufactured to be won as prizes.
Bongo’s Bingo has become a widespread phenomenon since starting in Liverpool in 2015, with its immersive experience involving an innovative game of bingo. Party-goers enjoy live performances from drag dancers, including audience participation, karaoke en-masse, rave rounds and just all-around mayhem.
On top of all the shenanigans, guests can win crazy prizes such as mobility scooters, a fully-equipped karaoke machine, adult toys and even a 20-foot-tall wacky wavey. But there is one prize that even has their own song and has received immense audience enthusiasm for years: Henry vacuum. Henry vacuum has been a signature household appliance for decades, renowned for its power, reliability and value. With over 15 million sold, the smiling face of Henry has become a celebrated icon around the world.
And now, a one-of-a-kind limited-edition collaboration has finally happened, with participants at forthcoming shows having the chance to win an exclusive Bongo’s Henry throughout the coming weeks at all Bongo’s Bingo’s UK locations, including at SWG3 in Glasgow. It’s pink (obviously), it has the same face, and it has Bongo’s Bingo written on its forehead.
Jonny Bongo, Bongo’s Bingo Co-Founder, says: “We are absolutely buzzing to join forces with Henry vacuum and the team at Numatic – this is literally something I’ve dreamed of happening and I can’t believe we have our own limited edition Bongo’s Henry. The reaction to Henry is always magical and in creating this exclusive one-of-a-kind unit, we now have an even more special prize to offer. For me and the team, it’s absolutely bonkers to see this become real. I vividly remember back in our earliest days in Liverpool buying the first Henry to give away, and having this feeling people would love it – and from the room going wild then to the present, the passion for Henry at our shows keeps getting bigger and madder.”
Henry vacuum’s spokesperson adds: “We know our customers choose Henry because he’s fun, stands out from the crowd and is fantastic value. We always have lots of offers to collaborate, but when we heard Bongo’s Bingo story and how Henry was already so popular as a prize, we knew this was something different. When we began working with the Bongo’s team, it was clear it was exactly what visitors loved about the Bongo’s Bingo experience and why their audience loved Henry. This is an exciting partnership between two very distinct British brands. Jonny Bongo himself pitched in at our UK factory, in Somerset to help with the first Bongo’s Henry vacuum coming off our production lines.”
