I apologise for the big gap in my blogs, life really does get in the way sometimes! I have started writing again and hopefully this year you will see much more enthusiasm!
With regard to Fetish Rocks I posted this on the Facebook group last March and it occurred to me when updating the site that I had not posted anything on here. Rest assured I will be refocusing my attentions on this matter in the coming weeks but for those in the dark....
We have had a few enquiries into when the next Fetish Rocks event will be. As it stands presently we are having to make some decisions about the future of Fetish Rocks at The Old Courts. It has been brought to our attention that there are a few issues with regards to the current venue. We would like feedback from our fans on ways to move forward to make all concerned happy.
One of the issues is the venue are not comfortable about us having the dungeon area for play due to the nature of the community aspect of The Old Courts.
It is also looking unlikely that we would be able to run Fetish Rocks at The Old Courts to the frequency in which fans have been asking for without incurring additional costs. If we stay at The Old Courts there would be an increase in financial outlay which would effect the door entry price. Ideally at this point we feel running Fetish Rocks quarterly or every other month is the best option - the quality of the show could be impaired if run every month as has been suggested.
Our main problem now is deciding whether it will be better to look for another venue or whether to stay and make changes to the event. As you can all imagine this is breaking my heart as we love The Old Courts and felt like we had finally found a home for Fetish Rocks but we obviously need to make changes which could influence what we can offer at our events.
One idea we have is to become a private members club - this would mean charging an annual fee (this fee would be minimal to cover administrative costs) and getting people to sign an agreement on entering the club. Members would be charged a fixed rate on the door. This would mean taking the event to a new venue which would mean that for the interim Fetish Rocks goes on hiatus until we have found somewhere suitable.
We feel we have worked hard to create a space and a community where people can meet and enjoy an alternative night with like-minded others. What we would like to know is what is it about Fetish Rocks that people love? If we have to make changes, what would people like to see done differently and/or keep?
