Sunday July 10th – Rope & Traders Frenzy!

Hi all,

Jahc and Richard Rope are back this month after their extended Covid break. They are limbering up, getting ready to welcome both newcomers and seasoned SWAMP string flingers, to oversee basic to expert skill sharing in the Peer Rope Workshop. The workshop starts at 2.30pm in the Demo/Public Dungeon area and runs until 5pm. If you’re not quite sure about getting physically involved, we’ve a large viewing area to just watch their creativity unfold.

For the first time since our return from Covid I’m pleased to say we have a healthy number of traders. You can check out who’s attending by clicking here. I think we’ve always brought a good balanced selection of BDSM items to your attention, but now there’s an even wider choice. There’s a good mix of custom, handmade and mass-produced goods for every budget, and your purchases, no matter how small, mean that the dedicated traders can offset some of the horrendous fuel prices we are all facing at the moment. Plus, remember that SWAMP is doing its bit to try and offset some of yours by offering free entry to the market if you arrive before 2pm, or a discounted all-day ticket at just £7.

Much as we want everyone to be in party/socialising mode during the evening do remember that if you are wanting to use the dungeons or needle workshop, then you would be advised to wait until after you’ve used those before drinking excessively. Our Dungeon Monitors/Workshop Leaders are very keen and will turn you away if they suspect you’ve drunk too much, which is what they have been instructed to do.

The afternoon dungeon area will be open as usual this month, but I’m unsure of its future as it very rarely gets used as it should, and I’m looking to create space for more lovely traders. Let me know if you’ve strong feelings either way.

Once again, I was amazed by some of the photos taken at our resident studio Paintbox After Dark last month. I’ve recently set up a new SWAMP profile on Instagram and look forward to seeing some of their work on there (posted by those who are happy to share of course).

Sunday June 12th – A Demo For The Postman & Regular Pricks

Our demo this month is a real interesting one – Elastic Band Bondage and Torture. If you’re friends with your local postie then you’ll be sorted for the equipment, all you’ll need is a bit of advice and teaching from -MrSharpe- with regards to getting some body parts entwined and you’ll be good to go. Pull it back and… Twang! – lots of lovely bruises guaranteed. I last saw this around 10 years ago and take it from me, it’s a lot more painful than it sounds!

After the success of last month’s Needle Play Demo, we are pleased to be hosting a regular workshop at the SWAMP evening party. James & Niki of Edgyyyyy_Designs will be practising and advising on this much asked about topic every month from June. It’s going to be a popular attraction.

We’ve a couple more new traders for you this month. Some are exclusive to SWAMP and we hope you’ll reward their dedication to their craft. A lot of you will have noticed some impressive pics of your friends come up on your feed taken by our resident photo studio PaintboxStudio. If you’re thinking of getting a photo done – kinky or otherwise, I can highly recommend their work. They will be at the evening party from 7pm onwards.

Once again, we are offering free market & demo entry to everyone who makes it along before 2pm, or the option to buy a full day and evening ticket for just £7. Crazy deal!

Last but not least, I am very pleased to be able to tell you that starting next month (July 10th) our much-missed Rope Workshop will be returning with Jahc and RichardRope at the helm. More on that next month. It’s been a while…
