About this Archive
Club Subversion was one of London's top fetish clubs and ran from 2004 – 2018. Originally launched by Mistress Absolute, Mistress Kate and bobette with the first event selling out it continued from strength to strength despite the many venue issues over the years. Mistress Kate bowed out if the organisation due to work and family commitments after a year or so and Mistress Absolute and bobette took the helm. Club Subversion spawned many spin-off events including Subversion Mansion, Subversion Boudoir and its most popular 'sub' version, Subversion Noir. The decision to finish Club Subversion was made after the terminal cancer diagnosis of Dave Playpenz. Dave was a dungeon furniture maker and supplier of kit for 12 of Subversions 14 glorious years and there was no way that the Club Subversion would ever be the same without him. The last Club Subversion was on November 23rd.
