Rubbered Up North is the invention of the lifestyle dominatrix Mistress Evi and implemented by a crack team of guerrilla rubberists including webgimp Royalle and CandyLatexCD, who operate in secret from the hills around Manchester. Based on the format of the successful “B&B with Mistress Evi” parties, RUN is the next generation of quirky small-scale events with a friendly all-inclusive atmosphere.
The ethos of Rubbered Up North is one of unconventionality and community. They have a perverse fascination with being different from other fetish events – they have an afternoon timeslot, they allocate places by invitation and they feed you.
RUN is a social gathering and a forum for others in the community to show off, be it crafts, play, costume or ideas. The venue enables a variety of activities to exist side by side without overlapping. There’s dancing, eating and socialising in the bar, retail opportunities, a fully equipped dungeon, two pools, a sauna and numerous smaller playrooms. All are well furnished and spotlessly clean. They also have full changing facilities and secure lockers for those many outfits.
The first RUN event took place on June 16th this year with the guest of honour Steffy, The Rubberdoll from Canada. They had had guests from all over Europe and pole dancing with Mistress H, who also gave tuition to willing volunteers… and some unwilling. There was a demo of needle play by the fearsome Rubesque. The circular chamber hosted Mr and Mrs Magneto, masters of electricity, who were on hand to demonstrate their extensive collection of vintage electro-medical devices, including an electric chair! RUN TV, their own TV channel, broadcast on the main screen while dinner was served.
This time, they aim to out-do themselves with maid service. Lovely rubbermaids will attend to your whims. There’s a demonstration of scuba bondage in the plunge pool, a medical area where you can find the cure for what ails you and house dommes will be on hand to put you through your paces. RUN TV2 has the coolest most eclectic playlist you’ll find anywhere and there’s food to die for.
There will be goods on sale from the great guys at Latex 101 who were so much fun at RUN1. Additionally, they have designers so new they’ve yet to break through. Bondagekitten and her rubber BDSM apparel and Catalyst Latex who will do you a mean latex kilt, sporran and Glengarry. The wonderful Mistress H who wowed everyone on the pole at RUN1 makes a welcome return this time, bringing her stunning bespoke hand-made hats. Also if you feel like you haven’t played enough when the sun goes down, they have been granted the use of the Manchester Dungeon for our afterparty by its owner Mistress Julia Pink. This is a where you can take full advantage of some of the best equipment in the North.
