Situated in a picturesque Hertfordshire village just inside the M25 we are one of the original London Adult Parties. We try to keep the format simple and fun. You don’t need to join a club, pay membership, send photographs or give your life history. We just look for a contribution to pool maintenance, damage, etc.
The parties are our social life, not a business. While revellers defray the costs of parties we can throw more of them. Parties start from 21:30 on the Friday night and stop when the last person leaves – sometimes as late as Tuesday.
To assist those who feel torn between eating out or frolicking, we ease the burden by feeding you to a fair standard. There are usually provisions for those who stay over for the apres-party gossip the following morning.
If you don’t feel this gregarious, please avoid the Red Lion hotel in the village who have let us know they find any association with the hot bloodied sexual olympians who frequent our parties offensive.
WELCOME To RADLETT PARTIES
The facilities include a 16 metre long covered pool, 10 metre dance room with dance pole, sauna, hot tub, 3 secluded acres for summer evening revelry. Revellers have been known to pinch themselves for a reality check while sipping pimms under the grapevine gazing out over the empty valley behind us. Between two and five bedrooms are made available for associative therapy.
You should bring 50% more drink than you would normally take to a party – this much fun really is thirsty work. The local police know of the format and have assured us that they have no concerns in their professional capacity. They are usually outnumbered by their off-duty colleagues in attendance already (though these choose not to reveal their identity to most).
Some years back a pedestrian flagged down a police car to complain of cars parked on the pavement. This is technically an offence which the policeremind us of whenever we transgress’, so park in the field behind the house where there is space for 100 cars. Access has now been improved so that anyone with an understanding of traction will be fine. If the ground is wet, the trick is not to stop until on the tarmac hard stand.
Attendance profile drifts with time, but the average age seems currently to be around 35.
There is no restriction on upper age or physique, but it has been many months since we saw any one who had lost pride in their appearance.
Minor adjustments are made occasionally to the emphasis of the DJ’s music to prevent us being overrun by head-bangers looking for a cheap evening out, but if he ‘takes inordinate time’ to play your choice, don’t invoke world war three, just accept that he has trouble integrating your rarefied tastes with those of the others present.
When he needs a rest there is a jukebox with 160 dance tracks from the classic eras.
In spite of Janet giving enormous effort to put first timers at ease, the only negative feedback we had in two years was from a couple who left ‘confused and disappointed’ because no one had engaged them.
They asked if we could place a manual of engagement on the wall. Could revellers please take a modicum of responsibility for their own interactions? A safe ice-breaker is to ask a couple nearby what their preferred approach protocol is .
The documentaries apparently shocked lots of you with the effort we put in for your pleasure – apologies if we fall at the last lap by not having that manual of engagement.
Perhaps that will be in the next documentary.
We look forward to seeing you all very soon.
Richard, Janet & The Team xxxx

"Where the parties don't stop til the guests do"
The Playgrounds FINAL party at Radlett on Saturday 26th November. Not to be missed. Message The Playgrounds for invites. Couples & single ladies only. Strict dresscode applies
The future is bright - the future remains Radlett. We are being inundated by people querying a rumour that Radlett Parties are ‘past it’ and have thus decided to take our venue back as a solely family home. Such reports of our demise are premature. Regarding being past it, let the couple who can put on two parties in a weekend on 3 hours sleep and challenge the dance floor in the process cast the first stone! Themes have been fun, but not to everyone’s liking. Radlett will continue to encourage dressing up for New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s, Back To School and Halloween, but otherwise will revert to a feature-rich venue for those who prefer their swinging undiluted by sartorial frivolity. Many years ago you, the great partying public, asked us to make our home available as a ‘fun factory’; and we will continue to deliver that whilst: (a) the numbers warrant it; (b) your contributions (help and financial) keep our home standing; and (c) we enjoy them. So it’s all down to you.
Karen’s Cougars and Cubs. - This event replaces the couples and singles event the Friday before each Couples only party. Apply by text to 07986 288580. The first 5 have averaged over 100 people. Her next is on Friday 30th December.
November 26th. - As for every month except December, the fourth Saturday is traditional couples only. This will be The Playgrounds’ last party here so come and give them a good send-off. They have asked for ‘firm discipline’ at the door, so no jeans please. Four options for transgressors: pop along to Tesco to buy trousers; borrow from the host; leave jeans at door and walk around in pants; or go home. Sheryl is hard at work preparing avant-garde party food to surprise us all so be here on Saturday. And don’t forget – there will be toast and coffee for the après party gossip breakfast!
New Year’s Eve. - Doesn’t time fly? First bookings are in already. This year's arrangements for NYE at Radlett will be much as before. Expect the usual whole hog roast, fireworks, midnight fizz on us, heated pool, hot tub and sauna -plus no “throwing-out” time. Doors open 9pm. The charity enjoying the surplus will be ‘Medecins sans Frontieres’ - they've had another busy year with Syria. If there are any spaces left on the night, the door contribution suggested will be £80 per couple. To reward and motivate pre-commitment, those paying in advance (non-refundable) have less to pay. £70 to Richard Stanley at Halifax Building Society, sort code 11-00-44, Account 00149451 guarantees your place and leaves nothing more to pay on the night. Please give a unique reference so we know who to credit. We recently refunded prepayment to a couple who claimed to have been bedbound by a horrible bout of flu – only to discover later that they had celebrated somewhere else. Ever since then, prepayments have been non-refundable. The surplus goes to a good cause. So please keep well over Christmas so we can enjoy your company! Around 40% of guys wear black tie. We sometimes get kilts, officers' dress uniform and
a few suits. The rest dress smart casual. Ladies tend not to need advice about the type of stuff to wear on NYE. If you have a swinger site profile name, please email that to us. We look forward to seeing you! Email us if you need help.
Vibrant Ebonettes. - Christmas warrants another of Janet’s Black Women’s Fan Clubs. Janet, (unsurprisingly given her deep tan) is well linked to dozens of black ladies. They have expressed their disgruntlement at playing second fiddle to black men having their own fan club. They have begged Janet to put them centre-stage with a fan club for themselves. If you are, or know of, a vibrant ebonette, or enjoy the company thereof, keep December 10th free for another BWFC.
Getting hold of us. - Until further notice, The Playgrounds have kindly agreed to manage our web site. It seems as if email contact through www.radlettparties.net is sometimes unreliable. If you are having trouble with that, text us on 07986 288580 and we will return your call. Please only phone that number as a last resort.
Loft access. - The local surveyor arrived unannounced recently saying he had received an anonymous request to close the parties down because of our loft being unsafe. Until he has verified the beam loadings for public access, that area is off limits at parties. Most people are happy that the facilities remaining, plus ‘parties that don’t stop ‘til the guests do’ make this venue their default choice. I have since found a certificate signed by an engineer from the same department approving the calculations on 1/10/2002 so matters should be resolved shortly. I have suggested to the authorities the following notice:
“This loft represents a fire risk that you must fully understand before entering. Loft fires account for around 20% of home fires. Around 180 deaths happen annually in homes. This ladder has half the evacuation rate of a conventional stair case. Thus, the chance of dying by entering for 3 hours is around 1 in 5 billion - about the same as dying naturally reading this sentence. Please carefully offset this risk against any pleasure you imagine deriving from the ascent before making it. The choice must be yours!!!”
Reviews. - Just log on to Fab Swingers, whose members say it all far more credibly than we could! Thanks for all the positive reviews – they made us blush. Except this one:
‘Avoid Radlett’. - We have been told that Radlett has earned its first rating in a long time below ‘fabulous’ - AVOID even! We must concur with the earnest young black guy who shook our hands warmly and thanked us to our faces for welcoming him so. If, like him, you interpret one white girl bouncing your oft-repeated chat up line, then her being intrigued by the next white guy she meets as racism, or if you are also black and believe your own hype that sex is your domain that white honkies must applaud from an envious distance, then avoiding Radlett would be a mutually splendid outcome!
