Halloween is a lovely time of year, don’t you think? The nights are longer, darker and just a shade more sinister… So it’s no surprise there’s plenty of extravagant kinky events for you to choose from.  

Have a look at our pick of the top 5 fetish events in London, so you can make sure that when the clocks go back, you know you’ve taken advantage of that extra hour

Torture Garden Halloween Ball
10pm – 6am, 5 November, £42 (Sold out) 
The Coronet, Elephant and Castle, SE1

The inimitable Torture Garden is back once again with it’s guaranteed-to-impress host of shows to 2,500 devious souls. With nine fantasy-themed rooms across three floors, there’s bound to be something for everyone, from the horror hospital (one of our favourites) to the Betty Page boudoir.

Music will be playing throughout the night, so indulge with some dubstep and breakbeats to ritualistic dark erotica soundscapes in the satanic dungeon….

Naturally, there’ll be no entry or refunds without full costumes. The event is thoroughly sold out, but it’s a two-parter, so do investigate the follow up event on November 5.

Club SubversionClub Subversion
10pm – 5am, 28 October, £15-25
Crystals, Whitehorse Lane, SE25

With a trample cage, a separate medical area and a kabuki-theatre theme this year around, Club Subversion’s October 28th event promises to thrill lovers of the exotic, particularly those with an interest in the beautiful art of shibari. If you’re a fan of latex, you’ll be able to get polished up at one of their shine stations.

Club Domina’s The Facility
From 12pm on 3 November, from £50 per hour (min 2 hrs.)
Secret London location

If you’re based in north London (which is striking distance of the Serpent Rooms!), Club Domina events are one to watch. Although it’s strictly members only, everyone is welcome, especially newbies, and for a limited time right now they’re offering free membership to curious souls.

This autumn, Club Domnia are bringing back their overnight incarceration delight, The Facility at a special secret location in London –  where participants will be imprisoned by the three duty wardens, including Goddess Cleo. You best behave, otherwise you could end up hogtied on the floor, tied up in a straight jacket or strapped down to the bed with hospital grade restraints. 

BOUND Rope Jam
7pm, 4 November, £16.50
The Flying Dutchman, Camberwell, SE5

The Flying Dutchman will be hosting another great night from BOUND, London’s leading Shibari performance night. On November 4, attendees will be able to take in tutorials, shows and enjoy the opportunity to get to know fellow rope lovers.

And special for this month, there’ll be an appearance from rope-lover Clover, who’s also a model and photographer. She’ll be talking about bondage from a bottom’s point of view, and answering questions.

The Toppers Club
8pm-4am, 30 October, £25-30
The Flying Dutchman, Camberwell, SE5

If you’re new to the BDSM scene, the Toppers Club offers a warm and friendly atmosphere alongside a very well equipped dungeon. Meet the Toppers Club’s in-house Mistresses and Dommes, and if they’re not busy, they might play with you – as long as you ask politely. If public play is your vice, this is a great place to watch and soak up the experience.
