The Birmingham Bizarre Bazaar is held on the third Sunday of each month 11 am - 5 pm at The Nightingale Club on Kent St in Birmingham's Gay Quarter. During the day you can browse and shop from some of the UK's leading fetish suppliers and more including the fabulous Jed Phoenix Designs, Latex Leather and Lace, Bridled Desires and many more including Lady K's too:)
There's always someone on hand for newbies too who will give you a club tour and introduce you to some lovely vendors and customers.
At 1.30 pm there is always a free demo on the top floor (wheelchair accessible) with a whole variety of skills being taught from wax, body painting, needles, electric play, role play etc etc. Visiting people from the USA and Netherlands have even attended to give demo's. Obviously, if the demo is not to your liking then you can have lunch in the cafe, maybe a drink at one of the two bars or eat cake from Kitty's Cake Emporium (some fabulous tastes to be had.)
From 5 pm all of the lovely stall holders close down and then it's time for the 'After Math' (the after market party) where there will be an array of dungeon equipment supplied and made by 'All Naughty fun for you' and a variety of toys. There are rules though so make sure you visit the website for full details. Tickets are £10 on the door or £8 if bought from the reception before 3pm.
