Ok, it's not a real WMC but you will find in this small downstairs room in Leicester Square Theatre, every 3rd Sunday in the month, the essence of club entertainment whittled down to fit the 3 hour time slot.
Big excitement followed with the bingo, with Rachel calling out the numbers in her own unique style, unlike any other bingo caller I have ever encountered.
