WISHING WELL 4th REUNION

White Horse Worsley Road, Swinton
This Sunday at the White Horse I’ll be hosting a new concept which merges bingo and music, instead of numbers on your bingo ticket there are artists and titles, all you have to do is cross them off when you hear the song…….simple !
There are new and old songs so I’m catering for all ages.
So why not join me this Sunday (18th March) from 9pm and don’t worry about work in the morning because the games only last about an hour.
