Eyes Down Bingo with Ida Barr at Southbank Centre.

Skilled bingo caller Ida Barr, who instead of morosely looking back on her glory days as a music hall singer, is best known for her unique brand of "artificial hip hop". Ida returns to the UK with a new show where if you book early, you are in for a riot of Housey Housey, top quality prizes (courtesy of Pound stretcher), and gangsta grandma rap including Barr's new collaboration with Dizzee Rascal, "I'll Slap Yer Legs (And Tell Yer Mum)". A huge hit of several Brighton Festivals and last year's Udderbelly on the Southbank.
