On Thursday 23rd July the UK Night Time Economy & Events Sector will launch the #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.
Below is the brief and link to the assets, which gives a little more information, but it is essential that as many people as possible post under the #LetUsDance banner next Thursday.
The government narrative to-date on the allocation of this support 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.
Please support the campaign to keep us all dancing together in the future,
