SWAMP will open at 2pm for November only instead of our usual 1pm.
This is to help the traders have easier access by avoiding the Remembrance Sunday morning road closures. Please spread the news to friends.
Our early bird prices will still apply and move forward to 3pm.
…and with them out come the ghoulies and reprobates to the SWAMP October 8th event! For the first time ever we are holding a Halloween optional theme for anyone who wants an excuse to dress up. If you’re looking to finish off your outfit with a bit of panache, we have a face paint artist trading this month – you could get creative and team your face paint with some hair tinsels too?
We’ve John from Wolf Wax Candles presenting a Wax Play demonstration & workshop at 3pm alongside the market, which this month includes a number of new traders showing off their stuff. I’ve just updated the traders list here for you to have a look – it’s a damn fine list too – ideal for browsing and collecting ideas for the C word coming up in just over 11 weeks!
Of course, you could always just splash out and spend the money on something for yourself – we all need a bit of self-loving from time to time right?
Come and celebrate more than just summer on the 9th July at SWAMP…
To start things off we are very pleased to be hosting a Collaring Ceremony at 1pm and the main participants are happy to have everyone join them for their celebration. This will take place in the demo/workshop area. As this is taking place before 2pm there will be no charge for entry but you will still need to pick up a ticket at the front desk before entering.
Our bi-monthly bondage workshop takes place at 2.30pm and runs alongside our vibrant fetish market. Entry to the workshop is £10 (or £7 if you arrive before 2pm) which also gives you access to the market and evening party.
A new problem was brought to our attention last month during the bondage workshop by one of our friends. During our last bondage workshop, whilst being tied, she felt her watch vibrating on her wrist, but didn’t pay any attention thinking the caller could call back later. Once untied she discovered it was her watch trying to contact with the emergency contacts or I.C.E numbers in her phone, thinking she had taken a fall. Fortunately, her phone didn’t have a signal in the venue so failed to connect. As she said, – ‘imagine that conversation with your mother!’ Her watch is an I-Phone 5, but they are now up to I-Phone 8, and they are even more sensitive and only give about a few seconds response time before they make calls for you.
So we would advise anyone with a smart watch that has this facility to remove it before taking part in any activity at SWAMP that could trigger an emergency call. Our cloakroom is very secure and constantly manned throughout the day if you are wanting to put it somewhere safe.
Not long now until Sunday – good times are just around the corner!
So who’s looking forward to Sunday so we can create good times again – we definitely are! For June we have a Wrestling Demo presented by XWX Workshops at 2.30pm. To quote them:
“Have you ever been into or curious about ultimate surrender, or evolved fights, or kinky wrestling in general. Well come along to SWAMP, watch people enjoy the kink, ask questions, and if you’re still curious to know more join us for a mini workshop where we’ll cover the ins & outs of safety along with the skills used in the activity. You’ll learn new ways to enjoy rough foreplay.
If you’re interested in taking part in the mini workshop this’ll run for approximately 2hrs from 3-5pm. Please bring sports/active wear with you & arrive shower fresh. If you have any sort of fragile skin, please cover this up. Cut your nails – both toes & fingernails to a safe length. Whilst the workshop requires a level of fitness, it is open to all – interested or curious, and you can take part in as little or as much of the workshop as you like.
We look forward to rumblin’ with you.”
The £3 market ticket allows free entry into the demo and workshop, and if you arrive before 2pm it’s FREE!
The demo/workshop will run alongside our vibrant market, which seems to be getting busier with each month – we’ve definitely got enough quality traders to keep you busy throughout the afternoon. Please come along and support their hard work – it’s very much a cottage industry and you can feel happy knowing your support is very much appreciated by each and every one of them.
The evening party starts at 7pm and this month we have our Wax Workshop curated by Amanda & Rob from Bound In Submission & Leather. From this month we’ll have a dedicated area to take your close-ups of your wax handi-work too, so we look forward to seeing those pics on here during the following days. That’s in addition to our Violet Wand table and whatever else people decide to entertain us with!
Good times indeed…
Have you ever wanted to fling a flogger, play with a paddle or sling a single tail? This month the f3werks team will be giving a basic introduction to impact play styles using different toy types. This will include a basic break down of how to use the toys, safety tips and the anatomy of how the toys are made. Entry to the demo is included in the £3 daytime market ticket price – or FREE if you come along before 2pm!
April’s event falls on the 9th, which this year happens to be part of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. SWAMP will be taking place on the 9th as usual, but there will be a change to the finishing times of both of our dungeons, as well as our event. Our dungeons will now finish at 10pm instead of 11pm, with SWAMP finishing at 11pm instead of midnight. This is due to OMG wanting to open themselves at 11pm. This is not just a change for April though, but for every month until further notice. We have arranged for anyone who wishes to remain socialising at OMG to be able to do so without paying an additional entry price, but you will need to swap your SWAMP wristband for an OMG one at the entrance at 11pm.
How is everyone? It’s been a 5 week month and seems like ages since the last SWAMP, we hope you’re all fireting fit and ready to embrace the February SWAMP.
For any newcomers out there (and I’m very pleased to say there are many), then you are in for a real treat this Sunday as SWAMP plays host to Nick, Grippa et al (the fire crew) for their entertaining and informative annual demo on Fireplay. We say demo but it always evolves into a workshop as it’s very rare for them to finish by 5pm, such is their enthusiasm for the topic. If you have any questions about fireplay these are the people to talk to, as they have over twenty years of experience to draw on. Proceedings will start at 3pm, so get here early if you want a seat, or to have a wander around our vibrant market first.
Speaking of which, we have a great selection this month. Seven Sin Latex are back to show you their latest creations, and Deadly Desires Kink Art will hopefully make it this time, after car trouble in December halted their attendance in December. Click here for the current list. The fun doesn’t stop with the daytime – aside from the fire crew hopefully hanging around for some play in the public dungeon, we also have @Mr_Mrs_Edgyyyyy‘s Needle Play workshop, @Papa-Rol‘s violet wand workshop, and a welcome return of our waxplay workshop, kindly put on by Amanda & Rob of @Bound-in-Leather.
From this month anyone buying a full day/party ticket will now be provided with a wristband rather than a ticket, which will make it easier for those that like to pop in and out for a smoke or a phone call – can we remind everyone that there are no mobile phones allowed inside SWAMP for everyone’s privacy, although we do provide a dedicated area inside the venue where you are free to use them.
That’s it for now – see you all Sunday!
December! Xmas SWAMP! How did that happen?
It’s now been a full year since we started back after the COVID break, and we’re getting ready for a big turn-out to watch our now traditional Burlesque and Pole Show put on by @SailorSeb and her team. Get here early if you’d like a seat – in fact get here early to browse through our increasing number of traders, selling everything from impact toys to decorative art pieces. Take a look who’s attending by clicking here.
Our regular trader Bound In Leather & Submission has a birthday to celebrate and has a raffle ticket for everyone who makes a purchase with the chance of winning a custom flogger, dragon tail, or snake tongue.
The evening party will have our dedicated needle play and violet wand tables, running alongside our two well equipped dungeon areas. Come along and celebrate a whole years’ worth of uninterrupted SWAMPS with the regions finest kinksters!
We’ll have sweets and chocolates for everyone too!
How is everyone doing? We’re part way through a five-week month and it already feels like ages since the last SWAMP.
This month it feels like we’re having another ‘return of’ moment for the bondage workshop, after the last attempt in September fell victim to road closures around the venue. So if you’re interested in rope bondage there’s all the more reason to come along and make up for it by tying/getting tied up for the afternoon on the 13th. The workshop starts at 2.30pm in the public dungeon space and runs until 5pm. Entry is £10 which includes entry to the market and evening party, or just £7 if you arrive before 2pm.
Lots of traders this month – the market’s steadily growing month by month – the traders need your support so if you can, buy from them rather than online, to ensure we make it worthwhile for their return and in so doing keeping the market vibrant.
With traders in mind we also have a small demo staged by one of our vendors – Kerry from Cotswold Wood Art this month. He will be demonstrating how to look after your wooden impact toys correctly – including a very helpful guide on what you should do if you’ve been a little heavy handed in play or with your storage. The demo will start at 3pm in the back dungeon alongside his stall, with a workshop running throughout the afternoon where everyone is welcome to bring in any items you would like his expert advice on, whoever they were made by – how good is that?
See you soon…can’t wait…
Everything’s looking good for the October SWAMP this coming Sunday. Now the weather’s changing, what better way to chill out than with a whole load of the regions finest kinky people? The club has a new heating/cooling system installed so it’s much easier to keep it at just the right temperature. We’ve lots of traders for you this month, including Seven Sin, a company specialising in latex clothing, which is something we’ve been asked for for a while. You can find out who’s attending by clicking here.
This month’s demo is all about breath play – a very interesting form of edge play which has a lot of admirers but not something we normally allow at SWAMP. In the capable hands of Mistress 44X it’s sure to be very entertaining. She will be looking at the origins and history of Erotic Asphyxiation (breath play). The different ways it can be achieved whilst understanding the dangers that are present with the fetish.
It will focus on the safety aspects and know what to do in case of an emergency. This form of BDSM play is extremely dangerous and can be fatal. It is therefore imperative that all risks are taken into consideration before participating in this fetish.
The demo will start at 3pm and last approximately 45 minutes.
Just under two weeks to go until the September 11th SWAMP. This month we have our afternoon Rope Workshop from 2.30pm until 5pm. Entry to the rope workshop is now included in the price of a £10 all day ticket, or £7 if bought before 2pm.
There is also FREE ENTRY to the market if you arrive before 2pm. So come along early and make a day of it, there’s lots of new products to browse through.
In the evening the popular needleplay workshop returns, run by Edgyyyyy Designs, and we also have a new wax workshop for you during the evening run by Amanda and Rob from Bound In Submission & Leather, in addition to our regular violet wand workshop with Mister Rol. Lots going on!
We would like to remind everyone that play in both the public and private dungeons is subject to SWAMP rules, and our Dungeon Monitors are instructed to step in should any play not conform to those guidelines. It really is very simple; our rules may differ to what you do at home or elsewhere, and it doesn’t matter how experienced you are – if your method of play doesn’t fit with our rules, please do not be offended if asked to moderate or cease play.
