Torture Gardens Halloween Ball Group 1

I've been interested (and a bit scared) in going to Torture Gardens ever since I heard about, so wanted to see if anyone else was also interested in going along.

 

Also, it's not until November so that's probably enough to time to decide what to wear!

      I'm not sure how this site works but i wanted to meet other tg goers. i have tickets already and hotel booked can't wait

      The event organiser often suggests a nearby pub or other venue for a pre-meet where those keen to meet others can do so. I think the last TG pre-meet for this group was the Royal Oak in Borough (they have a private function room), where people met, got changed etc

    I can't do the 7th Dec, but hopefully the 30th Dec at the Ministry of sound. I haven't been for more than 2 years in TG and really miss it. I am nothing of a player or a swinger, I just love the atmosphere, the music, rubber and high heels. And people are quiet nice there.

      I'm also going on 30th. Shall we meet up beforehand?

      Hey I can't make it now... I stupidly didn't get my ticket in time ... So upset - been asking around but the only person that had spares wanted £100 each whaaaaaat?!?!? will defo go to the next one though

    I did suggest it to him a while ago.
    If only I could be in two places at once....

    If anybody got their picture taken at the "It's Your Funeral" photo booth at TG, the pictures are now at http://www.itsyourfuneralparty.com/its-your-funeral-at-torture-garden-halloween.html
    I found mine and I'm rather pleased with it as a record of the occasion - though I actually didn't recognise myself at first!

    November 14, 2013

  • Nicky P.

    I see the Torture Garden is having a Christmas ball on Dec 7th.
    Haven't checked yet if there are still tickets available.
    Anyone interested? :)

      Interested in TG 7/12. Who is organising it, r u interested?

      November 6, 2013

    • Andrei

      I would like to come

      November 6, 2013

  • Katie B

    I had a lot of fun too! It was quite hard explaining the evening to my friend without sounding like I was just making stuff up.

    1 · November 4, 2013

  • Niall C.

    Big thanks to Katie or organizing this meet. I will be back sooner rather than later

    1 · November 4, 2013

  • Richard A

    Really enjoyed it - mainly because of the lovely people we went with.
    The music on the main dancefloor wasn't my thing at all before 3am (techno is my Kryptonite) but the little VIP room was great. Performances were good but not as awesome as I'd hoped for.

    As ever, it's the people who make it... and people, you did!

    2 · November 3, 2013

    • Richard A

      Having said that... it was quite an experience all round.

      I'd been wanting to go for a long time and I'm glad I did - and doubly glad for a great crowd to go there with.

      In fact it might not be my last visit...

      1 · November 3, 2013

  • Nicky P.

    Thanks again Katie for organizing.
    It was a really fun night. Nice meet up people I loved the Torture Garden - great atmosphere!!

    Awesome night - thanks Katie B for hosting! definitely up for the next one...

    What time u leaving the pub?

    • Oly

      Any way to recognise you guys once you are in? I'm just on my way.

      November 1, 2013

    • Katie B

      Look for a guy dressed as a fox, red coat and red wig. That's Rob and he's with us.

      November 1, 2013

  • Richard A

    Hope you'll still be at the Royal Oak at 9.

    After a wardrobe panic, I'm heading up to join you now. Yippee!

    1 · November 1, 2013

  • Katie B

    The entrance to upstairs is at the back of the pub.

    November 1, 2013

  • Pete H.

    I'll probably join you sometime after midnight at the club. I live just down the road. Had an exciting weekend - in the process of which I might have been attacked by ghosts and need a nap before tonight (interesting spooky story)

    In case anybody has doubts about Dress Code, changing inside, club etiquette etc, here are the pertinent links on the TG website:

    Dress Code: http://www.torturegarden.com/dress/

    FAQ: http://www.torturegarden.com/faq/

    "Please, always remember that if your outfit wouldn't turn heads in the street - don't bother to wear it to Torture Garden."

    "...You are very welcome to change once inside, but our Dress Code staff will ask to see that you have an appropriate outfit with you before letting you into the club
    ...and we have roaming Dress Code staff to check all those inside are dressed appropriately at all times."

    Still unsure about my own outfit...

      I don't think I have that much to strip down - guessing that's a good sign?:D

      I wore a corset and tutu to the one in September so if you're wearing similar you should be fine!Have fun guys. X

    I've somehow got child settings on my phone so can't look at the TG site right now at photos. Boo! Hope it won't be too cold in there.

    • Layla G.

      Hi Katie don't worry about that.... It gets BOILING in there!!!

      November 1, 2013

  • Katie B

    Quick update, the plan is to join the second group around 22.00 and head to TG together.

    Plan to hit the bar at about 9ish. Look forward to meeting everyone

    October 31, 2013

  • Katie B

    Hey, if some of us get refused entry we can meet back at Rockingham Arms. For guys who have been before any recommendations on times to arrive at the venue.

    October 30, 2013

    • neilb

      I prefer to get there early to avoid the queues at cloakroom and bar... And we'll be in a big group so won't be awkward being there first (I'm in group 2)

      October 31, 2013

    • neilb

      Also I nearly always change at the venue, so it's nice to have space to do so

      October 31, 2013

  • Layla G.

    I have one or two other people coming so will join up with guys later so to keep numbers down x

    October 30, 2013

  • Katie B

    Hi guys, I've booked the function room at Royal Oak in Borough from 19.30.

    How about we aim to meet around 20.00 but if you do want to get there at 19.30 the room will be available.

    1 · October 15, 2013

    • Layla G.

      Hey Katie. I have a few friends coming along to this. Do you think they can come and meet in the pub aswell? Or shall we just meet you guys later?

      October 28, 2013

    • Rebecca

      What time will everyone be moving on to the event do you think?

      October 30, 2013

  • Katie B

    Hi guys, just to add, as you can see, there are a lot of people who want to come along to this event so please set your RSVP to no if you are not attending.

    October 28, 2013

    • Robert L.

      We're going to be something like 5% of the total attendees :)

      October 30, 2013

  • neilb

    Thanks for organizing the second meetup... I had missed the RSVP cutoff with this one, so was a bit worried about coming... Hope the two groups can meet either at the club or on the way... Looking forward to this my 7th trip to TG - can never get enough of the place!

    October 29, 2013

  • Andrew H

    Hey Katie and everyone else,

    I've set up a "splinter group" for the lost souls, like me, who have tickets but didn't RSVP to you in time.

    http://www.meetup.com/Alternative-nightlife/events/147883632/

    So we don't all hassle Katie with questions or try to squeeze too many people into the same pub on Friday, RSVP to the new meetup which has info about the alternative meetup venue. Ben and I will be your hosts but we'll do our best to meet up with Katie and the rest of her group on Friday at some point. Hopefully in the queue outside the club :)

    1 · October 28, 2013

    • Katie B

      Thanks so much Andrew! I'll PM you my number so that we can try to organise to join the two groups later in the evening. :)

      October 28, 2013

  • Ka W.

    Do people stay til 2/3am at these parties?

    October 28, 2013

    • DeanB

      Only if they're lightweights. It's open until 6am & there's usually afterparties if you're being serious about it....

      1 · October 28, 2013

    • Ka W.

      Afterparties?! This is all exciting & new to me

      October 28, 2013

  • Katie B

    Also, since there are so many who want to come but didn't rsvp in time, can one of yo I set up a second event with a different pre meet pub, then we can all join up in TG itself.

    October 28, 2013

    • Amy

      ....IF I can I'll host the second one, or at the very least help you..would that be any good?

      October 28, 2013

    • Amy

      Ah, I've just seen Andrew's group....I'll go there. Please can you all add yourself onto Andrew's page for the meet up before hand...it will be in a different pub to Katie's so we can all get a drink and fit in the place. It is not yet 'live' becuase it needs another attendee, find it on the 'suggested' tab at the top of the home page. Please add yourself on there unless you are a confirmed 'yes' on this please add yourself there. OH, and I've just seen Andrew has posted this minute...so read that too :)))

      October 28, 2013

  • Jamina W.

    Hello everyone, if you can no longer make it to this PLEASE change your RSVP so Katie has an idea of who to look out for. With so many people signed up, she needs to realistically know who is going. And do remember, they WILL turn people away if you haven't put enough effort in so please don't hold it against anyone if that turns out to be the case. Otherwise, have fun - take lots of pics before you go in so I can see your outfits! Wish I could be there!

    October 28, 2013

      Hi Gabs if you get stuck , ill be there and youve got my number. Ill be a fetish fox this time

    Got my ticket ( but didn't managed to RSVP in time) so I'll tag along if that's ok? See you Friday at the pub:)

    October 27, 2013

  • Layla G.

    What time is everyone planning in going to the actual event? I will probably make it to the pub fir around 9 - you think you will still be there then?

    Everyone ready to fall down the rabbit hole.....

    Hi, not sure if I can make this now due to work shift change, but need to double check. i will let you know asap and change my rsvp if i cant make it.

    Suggestions for pre-meet pub: Rockingham Arms at Elephant and Castle or Royal Oak at Borough. Any preferences?

    1 · October 6, 2013

    • Robert L.

      I think it was the Royal Oak we met up a t for Rumpus. Location was good and there was an upstairs room we had booked which worked well.

      That's my local. Like 2 minutes away :)

  • Layla G.

    Getting my outfit together already haha! Do you think that since its a Halloween ball that they will be even more strict with dress code? The outfit I have put together is fetish/ latex/ military so it's not quite Halloween... You think that will be ok? Maybe I can get a latex mask or something

  • Katie B

    Hi, I closed the event to new RSVPs for now as a group of 70 will be quite a crowd. If you are attending on Saturday instead of Friday, don't forget to change your RSVP.

    September 27, 2013

  • Katie B

    Also, Pete, which was the pub that you recommended for the pre-meet?

    September 27, 2013

  • Naomi

    Hiya, what's everyone wearing to this? I was thinking of buying a burlesque type outfit, something with loads of feathers - I've always wanted one! Although it's a lot of cash...

    September 26, 2013

    • Layla G.

      It's nice.. I think team it with some suspenders and maybe a hat with a veil or something

      September 26, 2013

    • Layla G.

      I'm wearing either a black basque that I have or I'm looking for a latex or PVC one with big points over the breasts, latex stockings and suspenders leather studded gloves, military hat and going to try and make some red leather tails to tack on the back of the corset... It looks good in my head - may have to purchase an emergency outfit though haha

      September 26, 2013

  • Katie B

    Hey all, if you are no longer attending on Friday please can you set your RSVP to no? Will give me a better idea how many people are coming and how big the pub we meet in beforehand has to be!

    September 24, 2013

    • Jamina W.

      Yeah, I knew this one would be a little trickier! Just do your best really. If you're definitely happy to host and definitely going on the Saturday no matter what, I'm happy to announce the Meetup to everyone instead of waiting for more people to sign up.

      September 26, 2013

    • DeanB

      Ah great thanks - yes, I've got a ticket for the Saturday already. Definitely going. Worst case is that I'm a little grey & hungover from AC the night before!

      September 26, 2013

  • David

    I've been a bit tardy in joining in the conversation here, I went to TG Halloween 2 years ago and had quite a fun evening. Will check out tickets and say if I'm coming soon as. Cheers for organising, great idea for a meetup!
