At this special event to celebrate the installation of the Club Rub archive. Club RUB fetish night event operated eveny month for 20 years. Opened in 1996. There will be an opportunity to explore the archives through a pop-up display, and hear more about the history of the club with short talks from those who have been part of the community, including club promoter Miss Kim, DJ's Rob & Peter, Marnie Scarlet and ?.
Extremely honoured and eyond thrilled to be the first fetish club to be archived and cataloged, in a library, in UK history. Twenty years of clubbing history will not be lost, but be avaialle to access via their computers and on-site archive. When I met with head libarian and archivist Steffan Vickers, I remarked, "This is like getting my gold watch". To which he replied, "It is"!
If you were ever mentioned in a newsletter, photographed in the club, featured on flyer, illustrated a flyer, or took the photo for a flyer...this is your history too and you should come and take part in this historic event.
