March of the pigs...

Ahoy there!


Cap'n Steve here, Semaphoring my little arms off to get this message to you (thanks Facebook moderaters...)


We've been adrift in the January-February doldrums; but the unseasonal heat these last few days has brought wind into our sails, reminding me that Summer will be with us in the blink of an eye. That twinge of urgency in mind; a look at what the future holds!


On Thursday 14th we'll be getting out our joysticks for a little waggle... Joystick Jockeys will see consoles set up around the bar for your gaming pleasure. Entry is free, and we're open from 9


Filth, our monthly full-fetish event, follows on Friday 15th. This time round the theme is 'Colour Splash' - it also marks the THIRD BIRTHDAY of Skye and company's monthly celebration of deviance... we're expecting tickets to sell out, so don't hang around!


On Sunday 24th we have our regular underwear party - Cum In Your Pants. Doors open 9pm, and entry is £3 for members, £5 for non-members. 


Into April, we host Leathermen South again on Saturday 6th; Joystick Jockeys is Thursday 11th, Dirty Tackle Friday 12th. Filth falls on Good Friday (19th) and I'll give you details of our other Easter weekend events very soon. Sunday 28th is Cum In Your Pants.


The Sussex Beacon Bizarre Bazaar is returning to Subline in May, too. The date for your diaries is Sunday 5th, opening hours tbc. - mid afternoon is the intention. This is their regular sale of all the kinkier donations they recieve; the stuff that might look a bit distasteful in the shop upstairs..! Expect loads of leather, rubber and fetish gear, toys, DVDs, books, and more! Naturally, if you've some chaps that you just can't squeeze into any more, or anything else you no longer need for that matter; the Beacon are always very grateful for your donations. Drop them to the shop upstairs from us, or bring things straight to Subline, and I'll take them up for you. 


I'm also very excited to announce that we will be a Brighton Fringe venue this year, with Club Silencio curating a little queer festival from Thursday 23rd to Saturday 25th. More will be revealed once there's more to reveal!


I expect I'll be doing a little something for my birthday at the end of May, too; but you know I don't like to make a fuss..!


In June we have the massive Brighton Bear Weekend from 13th to 16th. On Friday 14th, Subline will be playing host to the first annual Mr Brighton Bear contest... see the Bear Weekend website for details... and we have their closing party - Underbears - on Sunday 16th.


Those even longer in the tooth than I (ahem) might just remember when this very basement was ZANZIBAR! At the end of June, a Zanzibar reunion event is coming home, which I'm pretty thrilled with.


At the moment July is looking relatively bare, with just our regular events (although there's plenty of time for that to change, it's still February!) in the run-up to Brighton Pride at the start of August. Once THAT is out of the way, we have the Bank Holiday Beach Party to look forward to on Sunday 25th.


That's a long way off though; and even at my very laxest, I'm sure I'll have written again and furnished you with plenty more details before then, so I'll give you a break from the relentless list of dates'n'stuff!


On a different tack: It is a scarcely-kept secret that I should be taking over ownership of Subline very shortly, and I hope to make a few changes to enhance your experience as we go along. I'm keeping my lips sealed for now, but I'm charting out the new course, and I think you'll all like what's coming..!


Until next time,
