Torture Garden is the World’s largest Fetish / Body Art Club. Events Attract 800 – 2500 people monthly to various London venues, with occasional International tour events all around the World.
TG is also a top Latex Fetish Fashion Label, Production Company, and Performance Agency.
Alan Pelling and David Wood formed Torture Garden as a Fetish Club in Oct 1990. Alan’s background was as an alternative club promoter & DJ ¬ new to London, and David’s was a conceptual art & film graduate who had been going to fetish clubs since 1984. Together they were bored with the existing retro alternative clubs and suburban-style fetish clubs. They wanted to create a new kind of radical & edgy alternative fetish club that combined diverse & progressive music, multiple environments, fashion, performance, visuals, installations, market area and more. 100 people came to the first event at the Opera On The Green venue in a shopping precinct in Shepherds Bush on a Wednesday night, but by the 5th there were 500 and it was rammed! By this time TG had developed its own unique crowd that combined the Alternative post-Goth / Industrial, hard-core SM, Fetish Fashion and Gay & Straight scenes, with the totally new Body Art / Piercing scenes. There was no other crowd and club in the world like it! Charlotte Hellicar joined TG Productions full time in 2003 as company manager following briefly working for TG Clothing and having been TGs “doorbitch” for a number of years, and Yasmin Kay became part of the team in 2018
In May 2019 David left the club to move to New York but remains involved with archive projects having been the creative director of the company for nearly 3 decades.
