This July saw a Fairground Fantasy theme, which encouraged the feel of a Victorian circus with a live fashion show featuring work by Lady Sea and Grin, Grimace and Squeak, alongside pole performances by Andrew Asylum, a dungeon area by Mistress Pamela Isley and a photo booth by Helena Eloise. Alongside a live auction with prizes donated by local businesses with all the proceeds going to The Old Courts to help improve disability access. Another feature 'sploshing in the stocks' saw volunteers get into the stocks and have cream pies thrown at them to help increase the money raised from the auction, raising a fantastic sum of £420!

Helen Hewitt manager of Fetish Rocks states "We are delighted with the funds raised in July. Fetish Rocks has always been passionate about fund raising. We are very happy to have found The Old Courts and share the vision for increasing arts within the community. Everyone involved in the production of Fetish Rocks are creative in their own right, they have something different to offer from your run of the mill night out! We believe the funds raised will help to make a difference to increase these opportunities to include all walks of life! Fetish Rocks hopes to increase awareness of the scene, promote inclusion for all and break down common myths surrounding the BDSM and LGBT community, in an enjoyable and safe environment".
