Richard Blackwood, who plays the ‘smooth operator’, Vincent Hubbard on EastEnders visited Beacon Bingo on Baxter Gate, Loughborough, last Friday evening (March 30th).
The 18+ event saw the star of the ever popular soap meet and greet guests, pose for photos, sign autographs and play a few games of bingo with the customers.
Richard started out on the soap in February 2015 as the mysterious Vincent, having previously appeared on Holby City, and Ed Stone is Dead. He also played the part of Donkey in the West End production of Shrek the Musical in 2011, and had two top 10 hits and a top ten album in 2000.
Commenting on the visit, Richard Blackwood said: “Friday night’s atmosphere was great and I loved meeting so many Beacon Bingo customers, all of who were in high spirits.”
Andrew Collier, Beacon Bingo Loughborough’s general manager, commented: “An opportunity like this was too good to miss. It was fantastic to have Richard in our bingo hall. Everyone was in such good mood and really had a great laugh all evening.”
“The event was a huge success and we were delighted to see both regular and new customers having such a good time. All of which clearly shows if you want the most exciting Bingo experience in Loughborough, Beacon Bingo is the place to come.”
