Bingo hall hopes to entertain grannies by hosting male stripper nights


A BINGO hall is hoping to entertain grannies by hosting male stripper nights.

Plans for the steamy events have been put forward by the new owners of a former Buzz Bingo, which closed amid the pandemic.

They still want a licence to play the popular game, but also want to be able to let Dirty Gertie shout “Man Alive” at the sight of some Baker’s Buns.

As well as blokes taking their kit off, the bingo hall will also host karaoke and live music.

One local said: “Bingo and male strippers — now my gran really will be laughing.”

But some locals in Weymouth, Dorset, are not so happy and say it is sending the wrong message about the coastal town.

One said: “It is not, in my opinion, promoting Weymouth as a decent seaside town for families to visit.”

Buzz Bingo closed the premises in the first lockdown and surrendered its licence last September.

New owners Brown Leisure said the premises will offer a safe environment.

Dorset Council will decide if it will issue a licence on Friday. Bingo halls can reopen from lockdown on May 17.
