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.
January 2019 Best Fetish Dressed Awards 2018
The BBB in association with Midlands Fetish Clubs are looking for the 2018 Best Dressed Kinkster in the Midlands. Each kink party that participated in the Midlands between October 2018 and January 2019 has nominated the individual or couple who they think wore the best outfit at their event. All the nominees have been invited to take part in the final at the BBB on 20th January 2019 where the best dressed from each event will now stand side by side with the other entries.
One of these fabulous entries will be chosen as THE Best Fetish Dressed Midlands!
There will be around £1,000 of prizes prizes and awards for the winners.
Come along on Sunday and help us choose the winner by cheering on your favourite fet dressed person/couple. Seeing the designs chosen, both home designed or from one of the fetish traders is always an eye opening experience!
