Cake, kink & kick-ass entertainment in store, as London’s largest alt / fetish night lays on a fun ‘n’ freebie filled birthday bash – demonstrating why it remains a firm favourite amongst clubland’s decadents!

PUNTER PRAISE FOR CLUB ANTICHRIST;
“what makes AntiChrist so good is that it’s different for everyone… you’ve got the dungeon, couple’s room, live music – something for everyone!”
“You’ll be comfortable the moment you walk in the door and you’ll have an absolutely great night. You’ll go home and want to come back!”
“Everyone is here for a good time, and people here are so friendly. So many places are so cliquey and AntiChrist is just a breath of fresh air”
Ask any Club AntiChrist regular what keeps them coming back and you’ll hear that a fun, friendly atmosphere, and eclectic bills planned with a diverse audience in mind, are to thank for securing the night – affectionately known as AC – its special niche in London’s nightlife calendar. An annual summer birthday bash is typically the time when AC indulges its sense of fun to the full, by indulging a full house of hedonists in a shindig boasting all the accoutrements of child’s birthday party, and with this year’s June 29th celebration marking 8 full years on the fickle club circuit you can be sure all the stops will be pulled!
There will party bags – available to first 100 through the door. There will be cakes – baked by clubbers who were quick to offer their culinary skills in return for free entry, and available free for all guests to feast upon. There will be AC’s own version of face painting – as Alice Bizarre sets up her make-up stall in the Chillout Room. And yes, there will even a magic show – courtesy of underground illusionist Dee Christopher, who presents his mind-bending party tricks on the Theatre of Sins stage.
While promoters of more po-faced fetish fashion parades may wonder what place any of this has at an event which also hosts walkabout performances from latex-lovers The Rubber Cult, and houses fully equipped dungeon The Devil’s Playroom, the people at AC reckon a fantasy-fulfilling clubbing experience really shouldn’t be so far from the feeling of getting everything you wanted on your 8th birthday. Often described as being like all your best nights out rolled into one, AC’s 7-zone soirees work on the principle you can have your cake and eat it. And enjoy some kinky fun in the Playroom and sofabed and complimentary condom-equipped Couple’s Darkroom too, if that’s what floats your boat. Or if you’re not inclined – or not quite ready – to play you can still get your money’s worth watching a full bill of live entertainment. Or dancing the night away to sounds spun by some of the scene’s best DJs on two dedicated dance floors.
Not strictly a cabaret show, kink club, goth night or live gig, AC prides itself on being a real alternative, aimed at pleasure-seekers whose party-going preferences defy definition by demographics. Attracting a mixed crowd of straight, gay, TS/TV, fetishist, Goth, rivethead, body-modded and cosplaying clubbers, to name but a few, AC offers its diverse audience an eclectic entertainment line-up, which strives to showcase and celebrate the truly different. In June, Rockworld TV presenter Lenore introduces to the ‘Theatre of Sins’ stage acts including AC-favourite flesh-bearers ‘Satan’s Strip Show’ and MisSa Blue (who presents a fluorescent paint and liquid latex splattering performances for the club‘s birthday) and electro-goth scene stars Zeitgeist Zero.
V2A’s skull-thumping EBM/harsh electro and Plastic Noose’s industrial beats and distorted bass complete the live music line-up, whilst forming just the tip of a top-notch bill for fans of machine noise, that continues through ’til 6am in the PureFuckingIndustrial dance arena with the aid of globe-trotting special guest DJ Totentanz. Trad-lovers too are catered to in the Hellfire Room, where goth and alt anthems rule the dancefloor from 2am after the Theatre shows – and with AC’s 8th doubling as an Official Amphi Fest warm-up party there are CDs and tickets to the German alternative music gathering to be won all night!
