Unfortunately it looks as though Townhouse will be closed until early 2020.
Because of this, sadly all future KINK events have been put on hold until further notice.
As the UK Govermnent has forced the closure of all bars, restaurants and venues, we have had no other choice but to cancel future events until the government allows for the re-opening of these venues. Although we don't know when this will be, we will alert our guests and fans as soon as we know ourselves via social media.
This also means that the venue (Townhouse) is currently closed and cannot operate in any way until the restrictions are lifted. If you would like to help Vic & Jim (the owners of the venue) through this difficult time, you can donate any ticket or drink money that you would have usually spent via our Paypal fund below.
100% of your donation will go to help them to pay bills and keep the club from closing for good.
Thank you for your understanding and please keep safe.
It is with regret that we have had to take the decision to cancel our KINK events until further notice.
Despite putting policies in place to protect our guests to the fullest extent, we have decided that the risk is still too great as KINK is an event where you can come into close contact with other people.
Even though our policies would eliminate obvious signs of people with Covid-19, we have to remember that carriers can still show no symptoms and therefore could still spread the virus around during the event unknowingly.
This leaves the venue is a tough spot. They have already had a massive drop in attendees and most events have now been cancelled, leaving them out of pocket from both hire costs and bar takings.
Most of you know the lovely owners, Vic & Jim, and the way things are going they will probably be forced to close the club in the next few days. They won’t have any source of income during this period, and the club could be shut for up to several months.
The Kinksters is not set to see much of a financial impact from the Virus, but for venues like this, the impact can be devastating. This is why we would like to offer everyone who has ordered advanced tickets the following options:
If you have ordered an advanced ticket online, you can either:
Redeem your ticket/accommodation for another future event.
You can donate the cost of your advanced ticket and/or accommodation to Vic & Jim to help make the next few months a little easier for them.
We will be contacting advanced ticket holders soon to find out what they would like to do.
Alternatively, if you were going to pay on the door or you hadn’t yet bought a ticket online, you can donate to the fund if you would like to, even if it was just for the cost of a drink at the venue.
If you haven't ordered tickets and would like to donate, you can do so here:
If you have booked accommodation outside of the venue and/or travel tickets, please speak to your booking agent, as many hotels and travel companies will transfer the dates to another time for you.
We’d like to thank you all for your understanding and cooperation during this difficult time, and we hope to see you at an event again in the future.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to remind you that operations in our warehouse and office are unaffected, and orders placed online will still be processed. If you’re self-isolating, we’re here to supply you with boredom busters!
Stay safe Kinksters!
