The i newsletter cut through the noise

Bongo’s Bingo is back in Blackpool this December with a confetti-filled bang - complete with box loads of glow sticks, a Henry Hoover and gallons of Buckfast at the spectacular Winter Wonderland. There will of course be a more than liberal dose of Christmas songs from across the ages - plenty of classics, ballads and hands-in-the-air merriment. Plus extra special Christmas prizes too. Tickets are on sale at www.bongosbingo.co.uk.

Swing Commanders, The Grand, Clitheroe, Thursday, December 20

Christmas would not be Christmas at The Grand without a visit from The Swing Commanders. This vibrant quintet, perform 40’s swing and western swing at its very best. Led by the incredibly dexterous upright bass playing of lead vocalist and frontman Pete Riley, the ensemble also features fiddle, sax, clarinet, steel guitar, accordion, piano, guitar, cowbell, drums and multiple harmonising vocals. With endless talent and a continuous swapping of instruments the show receives standing ovations almost everywhere. Book online at www.thegrandvenue.co.uk.
