New opening times
For a few months we are trialling a new earlier entry time – quite a few of you told us you want us to open at 10 and we always try to respond to feedback so in August we will throw open the doors and for Alert! DARK at Pride (see below) we will give you an extra hour of fun.
Phones and Photos
Please respect the privacy of others and keep your mobile phone in your bag or pocket. Nobody wants to hear your conversation and there may be people there who don’t want to appear in your selfie. If you need to take a call please do so in Reception or outside the building. Thanks
We’ve added some new photos from Alert! in our gallery section. This batch is from the Rubber Special in July and here is a taster.

August sees Manchester Pride and we have TWO linked events over the bank holiday weekend, which we are branding as Alert! DARK & LITE
The first of these, Alert! DARK will be a harder, darker, ticket only event, with a strict dress code for those hard-core fetishists among you. You will need to meet the dress code requirements to attend the Alert! DARK event.
Alert! LITE will be our less formal relaxed dress code event, non-ticketed – a great way for people who have not experienced Alert! before to see what we have to offer without the need to buy loads of expensive gear. These events will take place on Friday 28th and Sunday 30th August respectively.
Location: Alter Ego, Princess Street
Opening time: Alert! DARK – 10pm, Alert! LITE 11pm
We are outside the Village Cordon so you do not need a Village Pass to come to Alert!
Alert! DARK (Single event ticket) £10
Alert! DARK & LITE Weekender ticket £10
Alert! LITE Door prices: Members £8, non-members £10 or with a Weekender ticket
There will be no admittance to Alert! DARK to people without a ticket so remember to get yours! (See below for what happens if we have any tickets unsold by the Friday night)
Online sales ended at midnight on Sunday 23rd August to allow time for posting however you can reserve your ticket from the RoB shop and collect it right up until we open on the Friday night (RoB will be open until 3am Saturday morning).So you can guarantee your ticket and collect it from the shop closer to the time. Check their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/robmanc or call them on +44 161 236 6222
Can you pay on the door?
If there are any unsold tickets on the Friday night, these will be available to buy outside the venue from 10pm. Tickets are selling fast so we cannot guarantee that there will be many/any left. You are advised to get to the venue promptly as when they are gone we will have sold tickets to the capacity of the venue and will not be able to let anyone in unless/until someone else leaves. We hate to turn people away so we strongly suggest you ensure you have a ticket bought or reserved in advance.
For the Sunday there will be ample capacity on the door as we are selling fewer weekender tickets to ensure that people will be able to pay on the door but this apples only to Alert! LITE on Sunday.
Introducing our brand new night. Manchester’s first White Party. The concept is simple: wear as much white as you can. It can be fetish gear if you want or anything at all as long as you come wearing something white. White jeans, white shorts, white vest, white rubber gimp suit – we don’t care! Fashion, fetish, fancy dress, smart, sleazy, spectacular – as long as you have something white clearly visible.
This will be in a brand new venue, Bangkok Bar, spitting distance from the Village and certainly not too far out for you to go to all of the usual haunts before or after. But while the dress code may be white, the dark room will most certainly be suitably dark, dirty and sleazier than ever.
We’ll have a more commercial musical line-up of floor-fillers old and new from a great DJ and a real party atmosphere, so you can choose to be bouncing on the dance floor or bouncing in the darkroom!
We will let you have more details soon but make a note of the date: 11th September!
Location: Bangkok Bar, Princess Street
Opening time: 10pm
Our September main Alert! fetish night is entitled ‘Love Leather’ so the suggested theme is fairly self-explanatory. If you have leather, show your love for it as we join with the Manchester leather community for what we think will be a great night!
Location: Alter Ego, Princess Street
RoB Manchester join us every month with their RoB on the Road pop-up shop where you can purchase a range of suitably kinky gear.
If you are not yet a member but wish to take advantage of the reduced entry price at Alert! and discounts at RoB Manchester, RoB on the Road and The Basement Sauna, you can buy a membership online and we will have your card ready for collection at the next event. Or you can visit RoB Manchester and buy a card there and then. We also have a few cards which can be purchased at the venue on the night. If you buy a card online and want to make use of the discount at RoB before you collect your card, you can show your PayPal receipt as proof of membership. If you plan a big purchase from RoB it might be worth you buying an Alert! membership at the same time so that you qualify for discount on your purchase. The card can soon pay for itself that way and of course if you come to Alert! more than five times you will be saving money each time you join us.
If you ever want an item from RoB but can’t get to the shop before the next Alert! they are happy to take a phone order and will bring your item(s) to the next Alert! so all you have to do is pay! That means no P&P AND you can still make use of your Membership discount!
