Bingo! Market hopes putting the fun back into shopping will hit the jackpot
Eyes down, look in!
Wirral shoppers are being given the chance to stop off for a spot of Bingo from today.
Birkenhead Market is encouraging people to get their eyes down in between shopping as part of a new project.
For just 20p, shoppers can have a game of traditional bingo for the chance to win vouchers to use within the market.
They've brought in a classic unit from the North East seaside resort of Bridlington - complete with the market's own Bingo caller - to make the experience as authentic as possible.
Manager Danny Doyle believes the idea will be a success.
Mr Doyle said: “The idea came to me because I think the element of fun needs to be put back in to shopping.
"It shouldn’t just be about getting there and back as quickly as you can, you should be able to enjoy the whole experience.
"I think it will go down really well once people are walking past and seeing what fun players are having.
“We have lots more ideas in the pipeline and this is just the beginning. People should come down and give it a try.”
So whether you're Made in Heaven - 67 - or a Dancing Queen - 17 - you can get Up to Tricks - 46 - at Birkenhead Market. (That's enough Bingo calls, Ed) THE GLOBE
