MRM8 Crew

WE WANT YOU! Yes boys it's that time of year when we come grovelling and see who's up for the challenge of helping Manchester Rubber Weekend come to life! For several years now we've had an awesome CREW that help us facilitate the weekend and we couldn't do it without them! And #MRM8 will be no different!
We need people who can welcome others and smile and have fun and are happy to muck in with moving things or throwing people in a vac cube or shaking charity buckets and generally being awesome! Last year was the most organised yet with an easy time table and with such a strong group it meant people got plenty of the weekend to have fun as well as be proactive and give to the community!
If you're interested in being part of the crew you NEED to fill in this form as we'll be using that to know how best to use people and when you're around etc.
Click here to find the form!
Thanks so much in advance, you're the heroes of Rubbermen!

Manchester Rubber Weekend 8

MRM8A3wp We're proud to release the #MRM8 poster for next April! One of us. One of us. One of us. Thought we'd try something different and darker to the usual poster and have a rubber newbie being pulled in by the blackness; grabbed and hugged by the shiny black rubber hands (how many can you spot?), being converted to chants of "one of us" a quote from the 1932 film Freaks where all the outcasts ceremoniously welcome a new girl into their freakshow community of all shapes and sizes that defy the norm. It's become a bit of a running joke in the Rubbermen when someone gets into rubber for the first time. Slightly creepy we know, but they don't complain once they're converted to the dark side ;) You've got plenty of notice to get booking hotels and flights, event tickets will come closer to the time, but if you've not been before have a look at the #MRM7 tab on the top bar to have a look through what we got up to while we get everything planned! We're a more social event than a play event but rest assured there's plenty of hot boys and fun to be had, we've become known as a bit of a rubber reunion for many of the rubber community clubs around the world with over 600 rubber guys from 20 countries last year! If you're booking accommodation, look up anywhere near Manchester's Gay Village on Canal Street (post code M1 6HP), there's a wide range of prices and styles just few minutes walk from all our events. For travel Manchester Airport has a very quick train that takes you to Manchester Piccadilly train station, just a minutes walk from Canal Street. Click the poster to be taken to the facebook event to get connected and don't forget to get inviting, sharing, and RSVPing!

MRM7 Charity Total!

IMG_8783wp Hey boys! Hopefully now all the post ‪#‎MRM7‬ blues have been replaced with excitement for the bar crawl this weekend. We are so happy to announce how much we raised for #MRM7 over all! A whopping £5221! We met up with the hilarious Joanna from Manchester Mind to give her our comedy sized cheque yesterday and she couldn't have been more grateful! All going to help people achieve better mental health in the area, it's been a really important issue for us of late so we're chuffed! Wether Ryan and team shoved a bucket in your face or you played bingo with Jacqui and BangBang, whether PC Stewart gave you a frisk and polish or Matthew and the boys gave your their number at Slick. Whether you bid on any of the ‪#‎ArtsBandit‬ art work curated by Rick or downed one of one of Bruce's shots at Geartunes you all played your part in smashing last years total! There's too many thank yous to say them all by name but all of the crew that volunteered and made the weekend run without a hitch, the businesses that hosted events, gave prizes or added to the booklet, people that made donations online or privately, artists that added to the auction and just yourselves! We've always been a non-profit community group and we're so happy when everyone wants to help out and take ownership of their scene, whether local or in one of our brother clubs as that's how we're all setting the tone of what we all want this pervy bunch to be! I mean anyone can get a hook up off an app or in darkroom (which there was plenty of mind), but when it becomes a bit of a reunion or people go away with new mates or wanting to start something up where they are then that's when we can say we achieved what we set out to do! Thanks again boys here's to ‪#‎MRM8‬! 13243953_967083086741034_4024371630807248302_o

#MRM7 Weekend details

Updated logo!

MRMwallWP Well it's been a long time coming but we're very happy to show you guys the revised MRM logo with the famous loveable Manchester Bee just in time for #MRM7! We've been wanting to tweak it for a while now but since we needed banners and shirts and passes and such things printed for the event, now was the time to get on with it so we can future proof ourselves. WHY bother you ask? Well, when we made the logo back at the start we took the Lancashire rose from the original Manchester crest along with the red backdrop and yellow stripes (that symbolise the three rivers through Manchester). But not long after, we realised, the more you grow to love the city the more you spot the Manchester Bee everywhere, and while the Lancashire rose is the county Manchester was built on, the link ends there, Greater Manchester is it's own area now so the rose grew to mean less over time. The worker bee however (also on the original crest) has always been a beloved symbol and in the last few years it's really taken over, you'll see it on bins, bollards, mosaics, clocks, drinks, the town hall, signs and many shops. It was the victorian symbol of industry which of course is Manchester's biggest claim to fame, being the birth place of the worldwide industrial revolution and as many would argue the modern world. It's an ancient symbol of cooperation as bees only thrive as a community, they're productive, they all play an equal part, they defend each other, and with the climate as it is and bees becoming at risk yet such a vital part of the ecosystem it's no wonder Mancunians have all rallied around their favourite of the cities symbols. So here it is! The core team had quite the vote on it, there were some versions with cotton flowers too (another of the cities symbols) but they didn't make the cut so we've all landed on this version and we all love the bee, well, all except one of us who hates bees and thought they looked like flies but he's been thrown in a sleepsack in the cupboard til he comes round. We hope you like, you'll be seeing it round over the weekend and if you're a visitor keep your eyes peeled, once you're aware of it you see them all over the place! Be a bee!
