Demos and Workshops
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.
May 2018 Bondage without Rope
There are many different ways to tie someone up, and many different reasons to do so. This demo will discuss bondage safety, methods and reasons as well as demonstrate a variety of ways to tie someone, using bondage tape, handcuffs, and leather cuffs. It will show the differences between these methods and the effects you can achieve.
Different types of bondage scenes will be discussed and demonstrated for a variety of ways to play. The workshop will finish with a fun visual display of mummification.
This workshop will be run by Vicky of Bondatrix, a regular trader at the BBB. Vicky has been on the fetish scene for 18 years, running workshops and a fetish business for 13 of those and recently presented at both Kinkfest and the Rome BDSM conference.
This is a fantastic opportunity to come and learn with one of the most established workshop presenters on the UK fetish scene.
Free as part of your entry to the BBB (what a bargain!). On the top floor from 1.30pm. Wheelchair accessible.
