Drag Bingo: In the Swim

24 November 2023

7.30pm to 9.30pm


Unfortunately this event has been cancelled.

Make a splash with drag bingo at Waikato Museum, hosted by celebrity drag queen Anita Wigl’it.

This after-hours, adults-only event has been inspired by our new exhibition In the Swim which dives into the history of outdoor swimming in Kirikiriroa Hamilton. So dress up in your floaties and favourite boardies, or wear a huge hat with your most glamorous poolside outfit and jump in! 

The classic numbers game of bingo will be given a fabulous glow-up by our hostess, Anita Wigl’it. Along with lots of laughs, music and lip sync, she will also be awarding spot prizes throughout the night, including Best Dressed. Whether you prefer breaststroke or doggy paddling, you won't want to miss these aquatic antics at Waikato Museum.

This event is R18, please take it as a compliment if you are asked to provide proof of age. Drinks and food will be available to purchase on the evening.
