A swinging festival is going ahead featuring BDSM demos and clay pigeon shooting.

The four-day sex festival, Swingathon, kicked off in fields near Grantham, Lincolnshire, on Friday despite organisers claiming earlier this week it had been cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions that make it difficult for groups of 30+ people meet without exemptions.

The website boasts adult bouncy castles, wet t-shirt competitions and a mobile dungeon, and said the entire thing is “ Covid compliant”, according to reports. It also allows people to enjoy hot tubs, naked singers and a photobook.

Guests may also enter a Miss and Mr Swingathon 2021 competition and, according to the website, there is a BDSM demo, a sweet bar, outdoor cinema, clay pigeon shooting and a full mobile dungeon.

Guests were asked to take a lateral flow test 48 hours before arriving at the event.

An attendee told The Mirror 400 tickets had been sold in total and that the event cost £200 per couple.

A spokesperson for North Kesteven District Council told The Mirror: “A licence application was correctly issued, for a bar and regulated entertainment up to 11pm in association with what was described as ‘private camping for a private camping club’.

“So long as the event is conducted within the restrictions of the Temporary Event Notice in place, and in a lawful manner, there is nothing more for the Council to do in respect of this event.

“Ultimately the event organiser is responsible for ensuring the event is compliant and runs safely.”

Blimey.
