The aim of the Mancsbound is to provide a safe environment for men who enjoy bondage in gear to meet, try, test and improve their skills.
Mancsbound is a member’s only event, a membership form* must be completed in order to gain entry. Admission charges and a membership fee apply. The form requires your name, age, any relevant medical conditions and an emergency contact details. The membership fee is included in the price of your first entry fee and is £8. Members pay £4 except those who work in the Village and who have a valid staff ID who get free entry.
All money raised will be invested in the group in the form of equipment which will be available at every event (the current venue fee is £1.50 per head to cover their costs). Occasional offers will be subject to change and the venue fee will still be paid (unless otherwise agreed).
As part of the arrival process you will be asked to sign a record of attendance, this enables the organisers to keep a record of the numbers in order to pay the venue and also is you consenting to follow the event dress code and rules. You will be advised of any changes to these rules via Facebook, Social Media, by email or in person on arrival.
This is also a good time to advise Mancsbound of any change regarding medical conditions which may affect how and who you play with (we have a First Aider on hand but he isn’t trained to carry out surgical procedures!).
Attendance does not automatically allow attendees to tie or restrain someone, nor expect to be tied or restrained. You enter into any activity whilst at Mancsbound entirely at your own risk. If you prefer you can just watch, no one will make you do anything except to buy a drink (the Bar has to make money too).
No one should to be forced to take part in a scene/play, all parties must consent.
The use of physical force (violence) to start or during a scene is not permitted. It is important to be aware of those around you who may not understand that you are using force as part of the scene, who may be influenced by, shocked or scared by such behaviour and actions.As the event is open to all levels of experience this should be considered and discussed first.
- Flogging, Corporal Punishment, Nipple play, Cock & Ball torture are allowed provided consent is obtained from the ‘Sub’.
- Using gags, muzzles, blindfolds, hoods, masks and collars also needs permission from the ‘Sub’
Do not attempt to join in with a scene unless invited as per our Look don’t Touch policy.
If anyone says no then accept this and step away.
A generic safe word is displayed in the venue, if someone does not accept a request to stop a scene the use of the safe word will alert others and the ‘Top’ to release the person being restrained. If the safe word is used play must stop immediately, failure to respond to the group safe word could result in membership being cancelled.
The host, venue staff and security staff may stop any scene or prevent any person from taking part in a scene if they feel there is any risk to the participants or those around them.
The host and venue staff reserve the right to refuse entry to any person or to require someone to leave at any time, refunds will not be given and future admittance may then be refused.
IMPORTANT: The venue does not have a licence that allows sex on the premises.
Photography is permitted provided consent has been given by all parties, there is an official photographer so you can ask for pictures to be taken. Official pictures may be displayed on the Mancsbound Facebook page, web gallery and other media including our Twitter, Fetlife and BDSMLR pages.
If you do not want to appear in photographs then please say so before any are taken.
Anyone seen or reported taking unauthorised pictures will asked to delete the pictures, be given a warning and may be asked to leave the event. Whilst the group cannot take responsibility for unauthorised pictures, we will assist in any attempts to have them removed.
For your own safety, no inappropriate fetish gear or play is allowed outside the event (if you smoke cover up before going outside).
The organisers, venue and staff accept no responsibility for any personal kit brought into the events, any items left behind will be retained and we will make reasonable efforts to return them to their owners, any costs incurred will be invoiced.
Do not block any play space if you are not intending to use it, try and keep clear of any scene and allow as much room as they need, you’ll only have yourself to blame if you get to close and are injured as a result.
No Drugs are allowed before or during Mancsbound events (except poppers), if you appear to be under the influence of any substance (including prescription medication) you will be asked to leave and could be barred from future events.
No Water sports, scat, blood, needles or anything that may cause an injury or permanent marks are allowed.
We can only deal with problems as they arise, speak to the host or member of staff if the Club Rules are being abused.

We collect some basic information from you when you join, this includes:
Your date of birth – we need to ensure your old enough to be allowed in the Bar (we may need proof).
The city you reside in.
An emergency contact – in case anyone becomes unwell whilst at Mancsbound, if you need treatment then we can pass this information to the Ambulance or Hospital staff which they can use to contact someone if you need support or someone to take you home afterwards.
When you attend we keep a register, this is used as a record of attendance, if someone doesn’t attend for more than 18 months (especially for Rubber or Leather weekends since we get a lot of visitors) we’ll remove them from our records and destroy the physical membership form. If they attend after that they’ll be treated as a new member.
All members, the information we hold is stored securely, we do not share member information with 3rd parties except in emergency situations when we may need to pass details to emergency service personnel. This will only take place if requested by them in the event that you are incapacitated.
As shown above your details will be deleted in the event that you don’t attend Mancsbound within 18 months of joining, we will not send reminders.
If you wish to see the information we hold on file about you, or want you information removed (there by leaving Mancsbound) please contact us via Facebook or our Twitter account.
