Just let us dance: how the government is killing music and nightlife.
16th November 2020 (The Article). Last week, Parliament debated the “Let Us Dance” petition, which has gained 145,526 signatures in the past couple of months. It is a response to the complete closure of night clubs, events and festivals since the beginning of the first lockdown, and the fact that unlike theatres, cinemas and other cultural institutions, they have received very little governmental financial support. As a consequence, historical music venues across Britain are at risk of closure and thousands of people have lost work, without any reassurance they can go back one day.
