The UK Night Time Economy & Events Sector have launched their #LetUsDance campaign, issuing an urgent plea for support from the UK Government that the nightclubs and dance music events sector must be protected and recognised as an important part of the nation’s art and culture in parity with the wider Live Music sector, to ensure equal access to support.
With the hospitality sector recently given the go ahead to reopen under certain guidelines, the government narrative to-date has not included nightclubs, events, and festivals to receive funding from this package for the arts.
Nightclubs, dance music clubs and festival culture are a vital part of the British heritage as well as generating millions of pounds in revenue for the economy, it adds to the ever-growing nightlife tourism figures boasting 300 million visits a year across the UK.
The campaign aims to keep us all dancing together in the future, and is requesting people to post their favourite picture from a recent nightclub, festival or event using #LetUsDance
Support can also be shown by sending a letter to local MP’s, which is available to access https://www.ntia.co.uk/find-my-mp/
