Ida Barr – the people’s pensioner and the Queen Mother of our hearts – is a former music hall singer turned rap star and Underbelly favourite. Her brand of Artificial Hip Hop has thrilled listeners globally from dope cribs to residential care homes.
Now the hip-op hip-hop star, the missing link between music hall and dancehall, presents her Revolutionary Bingo Show.
Change the world and win big! Nothing will be the same again after a night of social agitation and tiny acts of rebellion using protest R&B and dissident songs from the 19th Century all rapped up in a communal hip hop style with mass singalongs and lots of that most revolutionary tool of all – laughter!
Get yer eyes down for a riot of housy-housy, top quality (Poundstretcher) prizes and gangsta-grandma-rap courtesy of ex-music hall star Ida Barr.
Ida’s done Bingo at the UK’s most prestigious venues and in sheltered accommodation flatlettes all over the country. Fans will know that she has her own patented bingo calls so it pays to pay attention and bring your own dabber.
A night of hilarity, highly-charged game-playing, Artificial Hip Hop and political satire from the Granarchist Ida Barr.
Ida Barr: Granarchist Bingo is booking on 29 June 2019 & 7 September 2019 at The Speilgeltent, The Underbelly Festival Southbank, London.
