Demos and Workshops

BBB wax play demo

We've been running demonstrations at the BBB since the very beginning. In fact, the BBB was the first UK fetish event to offer free monthly demonstrations.

During the years which we have been running, we have widened the definition of demonstrations to include workshops and discussions, and our unique performances. Subjects for demonstration and/or discussion have included technical and practical information on bondage, flogging, single-tails, electrical play, fire-play, wax-play, pony play, scene etiquette, role-play, and many others.

We have been fortunate to have had presentations by some of the UK's foremost experts in their craft, and we have also welcomed visiting demonstrations from the USA and the Netherlands. These demonstrations have proved to be invaluable for new-comers to the BDSM scene, but have also been appreciated by experienced players who can recognise that learning never stops, and that there are always new twists to some of the oldest games.

However, the "jewel in the crown" of the BBB over the years has been in the performance area. In December 1999 we presented (to a rapturous and appreciative audience) the world’s first ever BDSM pantomime, "Sinderella and the Magic Butt-Plug". A month later we presented the first of our (now) annual Fetish Fashion shows, reclaiming fetish fashion back from the "body police", and showing that ordinary people can look fantastic in fetish clothes.

Each year we have had Fantasy and Role-Play performances that have included electric-play light shows and spectacular fire-shows. In December 2004 we presented (again, to a rapturous and appreciative audience) "My Fair Subbie", the world's first BDSM musical.

The demos are organised by Keith, but with the active participation of a huge number of other people. If you'd like to be one of those people get in touch with him.

August 2018 13th Annual Whipboxing Championship

Oh, we cannot stress this enough - if you have never seen the Whip Boxing Event... you are really missing an afternoon of fetish fun!

Yes, it's that time of year again! The Thirteenth Annual Whip Boxing Championship will be held at the BBB on Sunday 19th August.

The BBB is pleased to announce that the Leather Family will once again be running this popular contest! If you were there in previous years you'll know what a mad event it is (well, it is the Leather Family after all!).

It's an event that's impossible to describe in print, so if you haven't seen it before you'll have to come along and see for yourself! It's fast paced, it's competitive, it's FETISH FUN x10! And if you're truly brave, you too can participate!

Free as part of your entry to the BBB (what a bargain!). On the top floor from 1.30pm. Wheelchair accessible.
