“I’d like to come along but I’m nervous” – What can I do?
We have over 19 years experience of introducing nervous newcomers into the fetish scene, and have gained an enviable reputation for being known as a friendly place to find out more about the fetish scene. If you are new you may be surprised to learn that not everyone who visits SWAMP is an SM lifestyler or a part of the fetish scene. Many people use SWAMP as a resource to find out what it is that they do like. Many people just like to spend a day in a non judgemental environment and just chill out. Be assured that there is nothing that we have not heard or seen before and we are pretty unshockable.
“How do I buy tickets, do I need to pre-book?” – We do not sell tickets online or in advance – you just turn up on the day and pay at the front desk. We accept cash only – we prefer to keep our entry price as low as we can by avoiding external fees. The bar accepts cards or cash but no longer provides a cashback service. Should you need cash on the day the nearest cashpoint machine is less than a five minute walk from the venue (Tesco Express, Park St.)
The entry fee is £3 for the afternoon market (1pm – 6pm) which includes admission to our bi- monthly demo. Our evening/ party ticket costs £10 and includes free entry to the afternoon market, demo, and rope workshop and covers the period from 1pm – 11pm. We do not close between the changeover and you are welcome to stay in the venue from 1pm until 11pm, or to come and go as you please. You will need to meet the evening dress code from 7pm onwards. If you are unsure about staying for the duration you can pay £3 for the day and pay £7 later to upgrade your ticket for the evening part.
