A day of talks and socialising for the non-monogamous community

7 October, London, UK

A one-day event for everyone who knows that happy, healthy and honest relationships don’t have to be monogamous, Polyday combines a day of discussions and social space to give you a chance to meet like-minded people, to build our community and to celebrate its diversity.

At Polyday you’ll meet a wide variety of people who all have different answers to a range of different questions, but who all want to explore the possibilities for happy, healthy and honest non-monogamous relationships.

This year, Polyday will feature many of the most sucessful talks and speakers that we have had in the previous years, along with new contributors.

New to the concept of Polyamory? Or perhaps you have been practicing or learning about non-monogamy for a while? These sessions, built around questions and discussions, are for you.

DK Green, counsellor and psycotherapist, will be joining us again this year in two sessions: the first one dedicated to talking about the issue of mental health, and the second one focused on the challenges and joys of parenting within poly families.

Jen Hazel will be facilitating this talk focused on communication about sexual health, issues of shame or vulnerability around STI’s, and discussing boundaries and desires with new and old partners.

This year, we will be encouraging more participation from people attending, including “lighting talks” (where anyone can present for a few minutes!) and socialising activities.

We are still finalising the programme, so come back soon for updates!


Polyday is a non-profit event run by volunteers.

We are in the process of putting together the programme of Polyday 2017 and would very much like to hear from people that want to facilitate workshops on key topics around non-monogamy and polyamory.

Is that you? Please fill out this form.


What time does the day start?

Doors open at 9:30. Greetings and housekeeping will take place at 10:15 and the first sessions start at 10:30.

Where does the price of my ticket go?

Spaces in London are really expensive. Literally 99% of your ticket goes to paying for the venue, with the remaining 1% covering miscellaneous event costs (blu tac, stickers, paper…).

The venues consistently cost around £2k, and we haven’t been able to find any venues that are significantly cheaper than that for our requirements.

 Can I get food at the venue? Are refreshments available?

There are shops/pubs/cafes in the area, so we won’t have catering on offer this time.

There will be teas and coffee and a few snacks available to purchase for a small contribution. You may bring your own picnic if you want.

There is also a microwave available if you need to get something reheated at lunchtime.

What tickets are available on the door?

Day tickets (£20) are available on the door. Please note that we cannot offer concessions on the day.

Can I bring children?

Yes. Children under 12 pay £10 (available at the door only). Children under 5 can come in for free.

Please note that there will be no childcare service. Children must be accompanied at all times by an adult. Sessions suitable only for those over 18 will be flagged.

Can I sponsor Polyday?

Please get in touch to discuss sponsoring possibilities.

I am writing and article/making a documentary on polyamory. Can I attend?

People working in the media are welcome to attend Polyday by purchasing a ticket and requesting a “Press Badge”. Please do so through our contact form.

Can I bring/pass out flyers for my business/event?

You can bring flyers, which we will place on a table for that purpose.

Who would I contact if I want to volunteer?

Thank you for volunteering! Polyday wouldn’t be possible without the support of people like you.

Please fill the contact form to volunteer.

Do the organisers get paid for their work?

No, we don’t get paid – in fact, we even pay for our own (full price) tickets! We also don’t get our expenses paid (and some of us don’t live in London) so between travelling to the monthly committee meetings and things we buy for Polyday, it actually costs us more as individuals to attend than anyone else!

Is the venue accessible?

Please check our accessibility section. More information on the accessibility of the venue can be find in the DisabledGo website.

What is the nearest train station?

Battersea Park is the nearest suburban rail station.

Clapham Junction is about 12 minutes away by public transport.

Venue Accessibility Details

If you have a disability or other access need (eg mobility issue, sensory impairment, mental health need, learning disability/difficulty) please get in touch as early as possible.

If you are coming to Polyday with your own support/personal assistant/carer you will not be expected to pay for them to attend to support you.

On the day

Seating should be available throughout the day, as will refreshments.

If you are having problems on the day, please ask one of the many volunteer helpers for assistance, don’t stay silent – it may be that we can solve any problem on the spot, and if not it’s useful to help us run future events.


If you have any questions about the event, please contact us using the form below.


Thanks for any help you can give. Polyday is all about the people who come. Help us attract a big, diverse crowd and the day will be all the better.

To help make Polyday enjoyable for everyone who attends, we’ve drawn up this code of conduct.

  • We love photographs, but please only photograph, film, or record people with their express consent, and say if and where any recording or photograph will be used.
  • Keep what is said in workshops confidential. If you discuss a workshop, whether in conversation, in a blog entry, or elsewhere, don’t identify any participants without their permission.
  • When discussing attenders more generally, please use the name on their name badge.
  • Please respect the privacy of others generally.
  • People from the media can attend Polyday by purchasing a ticket and requesting a “Press Badge” that they must wear at all times.
  • No filming, recording or photographing can take place during workshops. Participants can only be filmed, photographed or interviewed if they are adults and give express consent.
  • No smoking inside at Polyday – this is the law.
  • Party responsibly; try to avoid getting too drunk or too dehydrated.
  • No means no: if someone asks you to leave them alone, please do so immediately.
  • No one at Polyday should be put under any pressure to join in with anything they don’t want to.
  • Hugs and touches can be great, but not everybody wants them. Don’t invade personal space unless you are invited to. A useful phrase is ‘Would you like a hug?’.
  • Polyday is not a fetish club or a sex club; please keep any behaviour legal, and generally within the bounds of what’s acceptable in public.
  • If you’re getting unwanted attention from someone, you can tell the desk or workshop facilitator, and we will politely tell them to stop. We’re happy to do so even if you haven’t asked them to stop since that’s not always easy to do.

If you have any problems, questions or comments, or notice anything that concerns you, please talk to the staff on the registration desk.

Should we find it necessary to ask a Polyday attender to leave for the safety or wellbeing of others, no refund will be offered.
