Whether it’s the sweat running down the walls or the electricity of being surrounded by a crush of moving bodies, nightlife continues to be invigorating and inspiring across generations. We’ve said it many times before but it doesn’t get any less true: after a year of lockdown we need to get back to the club.
When we emerge from restrictions on 21 June, however, many venues will have vanished, forced into closure by the events of the past year and lack of government support. The pandemic has highlighted that, no matter the creative or community value that clubs represent, the industry will always be under appreciated by our Conservative, culture-phobic politicians.
