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 July we will throw open the doors an hour early, and for Alert! DARK at Pride (see below) we will give you a massive two hours extra with our opening time of 9pm.
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.

Following on from the success of the last two underwear themed events, we are delighted that Alert! Brief Encounter will be back again this side of Pride, on August 14th. This is a great way to introduce yourself to the Alert! brand if you have not been to one of our nights before, whilst not needing to commit to buying any fetish gear. After all, we all have a pair of pants, don’t we?
Manchester PRIDE 2015
August sees Manchester Pride and we have TWO linked events overthe 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 (tickets are on sale now), with a strict dress code for those hard-core fetishists among you. ALERT! LITE will be our less formal relaxed dress code event, with availability on the door so you don’t need a ticket – 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. We remain outside the Village cordon so you will NOT need a Village Pass to come to any of the Alert! nights over Pride!
Check out the event page for all the details as they are finalised!
Summer Survey 2015
Every so often we ask you to tell us a bit about your experience at Alert! so that we can try to ensure we give you the best experience possible. Our Summer Survey is online now – it only takes a minute to complete and this sort of feedback is invaluable and helps ensure that your views, thoughts and wishes form the cornerstone of Alert! planning going forward.
Dress Code Reminder
We have noticed over the last few months that a couple of people have managed to sneak in without abiding by the dress code and so need to remind everyone that we do reserve the right to remove anyone who is not dressed in appropriate attire. It isn’t sufficient to just strip down to a pair of St Michael boxers – we would like you to try to at least wear a Jock or some football shorts. If you see anyone on the night who is clearly not just entering or leaving the building and is in ‘street clothes’ then please let us know and we will ask them to change or leave. We try to be flexible and a little lenient with the dress code as we know that not everyone can afford full rubber or leather outfits but coming in without making any effort at all is not acceptable. It is hard to police this with the layout of the venue as it is so we need your help

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
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 (joint ticket) £17
Alert! LITE Door prices: Members £8, non-members £10
There will be no admittance to Alert! DARK to people without a ticket so remember to get yours!
Tickets are available via our online store (P&P applies), at any Alert! events before Pride and from RoB Manchester. RoB also offer a ‘ring and reserve’ service if you want to guarantee your ticket and collect it from the shop closer to the time.
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!
This will be in a brand new venue, 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 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
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!

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!
