Ban on ‘£10 porn discos’ and pole dancing at ex-embassy building

The High Court has imposed a permanent ban on an entrepreneur's use of a historic London house for activities including a “porn disco”, a sex party and pole dancing lessons.

Westminster City Council took proceedings against Edward Davenport over a series of high-profile events at 33 Portland Place, the 110-room former High Commission of Sierra Leone and Gambia.

It told Mr Justice Eady there had been “persistent and flagrant” planning breaches, with the 18th century Robert Adam mansion having been used for commercial rather than residential purposes.

The judge said that the “porn disco” had been advertised on the web and tickets cost £10.

“The officers who attended the event confirmed the accuracy of the description,” he added.
