Ida Barr: Granarchist Bingo
  • London Fringe

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.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
