We are now well into the run-up to this year’s Manchester Pride and as is traditional there will be an extra Pride Alert! on the Friday so you can start the fun in your favourite fetish gear. Our door falls outside the Village cordon so you will not need a Pride wristband.
Early Bird tickets are on sale now via our Pride Page, from Manworx (ex-RoB Shop) and from the next Alert! We are deliberately selling fewer tickets this year to allow people to pay on the door, but remember, only a ticket guaranteed entry and the prices will increase when the Early Bird tickets have been sold. Online sales will incur a P&P charge – we always send out in first class post, with a plain envelope.
Pride is always a load of fun and one of the best nights of the year so we hope you are looking forward to it as much as we are.
Our next night is Friday the 6th of August – yes, you get TWO events in one month, with this and then Pride. The first event is an Alert! LITE which means we drop the dress code faster than a horny homo can drop his jock, so it is a great chance to bring along friends who perhaps don’t have the gear, or indeed an opportunity for anyone who is just curious about what an Alert! is like to come see what we get up to!
We really hope that the Leathermen can now begin to enjoy similar success to the Rubbermen and their weekend goes from strength to strength, so your support in that is important.
Let’s show the world that Manchester is the place to be for those into leather too.
Naturally Alert! is supporting the weekend and we will offer the main attraction on the Saturday night, so you can expect something different to a normal Alert! with all sorts of leathery interest, fun and focus.
Of course you don’t HAVE to come wearing leather. Our full dress code will be in operation but if you have it, love the leather, don’t hide the hide, and show our Leather community the special love only Manchester brings.
Phase 2 is very much still very much alive and kicking. Not a day goes by in which I don’t do something towards it but these things are laborious. Finding just the right property, at a price that means we can attract investment without that needing to be so high it’s unaffordable, is no easy task. Like buying any property we have had setbacks, challenges and changes. One property fell through, another proved unworkable, we are at the early stages of chasing after and bidding on a third. I wish things moved faster, were easier, cheaper, simpler – but if they were then everyone would be doing it! Behind the scenes the team are working very hard to make Phase 2 a reality. I’ve got everything crossed that we will be able to give you absolute answers soon but until then I don’t want to raise your hopes only to have to then announce another delay or hurdle or spanner in the works. Let me and the team suffer the rollercoaster for you and know this: we are working furiously to make it happen and as soon as we can say something for sure we will do.
