Event description

Description

KinkFest UK is an educational kink, BDSM and fetish conference to be held at Xtasia, West Bromwich, on Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 August 2018.

This year there will also be a pre-event munch/meet & greet on Friday evening which will start at 6.30pm, at The Vine pub in West Bromwich. Guests can pick up their lanyards from 10am on Saturday morning or at the pre-munch.

There will be 20+ practical workshops and demonstrations, 14+ facilitated discussion sessions and plenty of space for socialising and chilling out in the daytime. On Saturday night, there will be 2 performances, followed by a play party for which we will have access to all of the amazing space and equipment at the venue, including a massive jacuzzi.

Ticket prices include a buffet lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and brunch on Sunday morning.

KinkFest is a not-for-profit event and is run entirely by volunteers. The aim of the weekend is to provide a fun, relaxed and supportive environment in which kinksters of all flavours can come together to learn, practice, discuss and make friends.

We expect to have attendees of a variety of ages, genders, races, sexual- and kink-orientations and experience levels. In short, we welcome anyone over the age of 18 with an active and supportive interest in BDSM or fetish.


FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

As this is a Kink/Fetish/BDSM event we have a strict over-18's only policy. The venue staff may ask for photo ID.


Can I donate to the Access Fund when I buy my ticket?

Absolutely! This year, we are again setting up an access fund to assist those who would normally struggle to attend KinkFest 2018 due to financial restrictions. Last year, we were, with your kind donations, able to assist six individuals with the cost of the tickets. This year, we'd like to at least equal that. Please add a donation when you're ordering your ticket if you feel able to do so.


Will you be raising money for Backlash again this year?

Yes! Last year we managed to donate £500 to Backlash, due to your generous donations, the raffle and a slight surpless that we had from the event. This year, we have the option of donating monies at the point where you buy your ticket, a collection at the event itself and 50% of any profits we manage to make from the sale of any merchandise (yes, KinkFest t-shirts!)


Can I buy any branded merchandise?

Yes! We are sourcing t-shirts available from our website very soon, and are looking into branded underwear for this year's event! 50% of the profits from merchandise will be going to Backlash, so buy your gear and know you are supporting an important cause! Wear your KinkFest 2018 garments with pride!


Where can I stay?

There's a Premier Inn about a one minute walk from Xtasia, on High Street, B70 6JJ.
There's a Park Inn about a fifteen minute walk from Xtasia, just off junction 1, M5, B70 6RS.
For the first time this year, you can now also stay at Xtasia! Contact the venue directly for details or look on their website.
Please note that we do not endorse any of the listed places to stay -- they are here for reference and your convenience.


What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

If you are driving for both days then there are carparks within two minutes walk of the venue. Alternatively if you are staying at the local Premier Inn then it is less than a minutes walk from the front door of the club to the hotel and there is parking for hotel guests. There's also the Park Inn about half-a-mile from the venue.


What can't I bring to the event?

Mobile phones and cameras cannot be taken into the venue beyond reception. There is a cloakroom with CCTV where they can be left. This is venue policy and one we agree is best for everyone's peace of mind. If you are "On Call", please contact us to make special arrangements. THIS RULE WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED. BY BUYING A TICKET YOU AGREE NOT TO BRING YOUR PHONE OR CAMERA INTO THE VENUE.

Do not bring drugs or alcohol. Drinks may be purchased at the bar.


Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Email us at kinkfestuk@gmail.com, or message KinkFestUk on FetLife.


Is my registration/ticket transferrable? Can I update my registration information?

Yes. You may make changes to your details, or transfer your ticket to someone else, up to a week before the event. Please contact the organisers to do this.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, your chosen name will be on a list.


What is the refund policy?

Unfortunately tickets are non-refundable, but can be transferred, as described a couple of paragraphs above.


What about my data?

We take your privacy seriously. Your details will only be visible to the KF 2018 team and will be kept in a password-protected account. We promise to never reveal your details to any third parties for any reason unless required to do so by law.
