May 2022 UK events: Newly-listed fetish events happening in the next month.
With the impending arrival of May, the fetish event scene in the UK and beyond is gearing up for something much more like a ‘normal ’ — ie pre-covid — programme of spring partying.
We’ve been researching new dates that have recently been scheduled, and also checking for updates on events listed earlier by promoters hoping that this time, at last, with covid restrictions being relaxed, they’ll really be able to go ahead!
To make new and updated listings more accessible, we’re going to be adding more regional previews in this news section as listings get added or amended. And new or updated events that we mention here will come with internal links to their full Directory listing pages.
We’re starting with some new listings of UK fetish events for May 2022. They’re mentioned here in date order, with pink links to their individual listing pages in this Directory.
