Have you missed us? Oh we’ve missed you so. So much in fact we’ve organised for you a super delightful treat. We’re simply brimming with delight in fact, to welcome Audrey Heartburn to Oxford with her most wonderful bingo night “Bingo at Tiffany’s”
Expect prizes, professions of love and a great opportunity to wear that little black dress if you like – boys included!
“Continuing Irregular Folk’s passion for a good laugh Audrey Heartburn wowed the club during comedian Tracey Collin’s multi-character show “Tina T’Urner Tea Lady and Freaks.” The previous two Tina T’urner Tea Lady “Steamy Bingos” have both received a rapturous reception and both sold out in advance. So, when we (Irregular Folks) discovered Audrey is up for Bingo too, we lept at the chance to give everyone quite the perfect twisted Valentine’s Day alternative for 2020.“

What is Irregular Folks?
An irregular music and arts club is all about celebrating the unique via evening gigs, and a mini festival called the Irregular Folks Summer Session. Folks stands for people, not the genre. It’s all about highly talented, creative, brave people who aren’t afraid to follow their own unique path. It sets out to take audiences on new artistic adventures. It doesn’t care if the artist is well known or not, it’s about the brilliance of the creative. In terms of the music programming every artist is a headliner. As well as carefully booking incredibly talented and unique artists, it’s about creating an ideal platform from which to experience these artists and promoting best production practices, as well as affordability for audiences to try out something new. Something they may never have heard of before.
A brief history of Florence Park Community Centre
We love that this community centre was built using money raised primarily from bingo!
Built in 1952 many volunteers and members of the Bowls Club building worked long hours to build the centre. Continuous fundraising including summer fetes and bingo drives raised the funds to bring this centre into existence. It opened in Sept 1957. Florence Park became the first community centre in Oxford to hold it’s own licenced bar. Profits from the bar are still handed over to the Association (formed in 1949), enabling them to support its day to day costs. The Centre is a hive of activity hosting Annual Dinners, Christmas Bazaars, sporting events, darts, Aunte Sally, cribbage and of course bingo! Recently, new events have included monthly ‘Sunday Sessions’ – family friendly music afternoons with bands from the local area, yoga, baby Zumba and other activities – many of which were requested by locals in the Florence Park-wide survey.
