UK nightlife ‘faces extinction’ without government support

Andy Robertson

18th February 2021 (City AM). The UK’s nightlife scene is at risk of extinction without urgent financial support, the government has been warned. A group of 40 cross-party MPs today urged the prime minister and chancellor Rishi Sunak to bring forward a sector-specific grant package and lay out a detailed roadmap for reopening venues to avoid “irreversible losses” for businesses. They added that a collapse of nightclubs and bars would create “ghost towns” across the country that would hinder the wider economic recovery. Boris Johnson is expected to lay out a plan for easing lockdown on 22 February, including target dates for reopening different parts of the economy.
