Newly formed Night Time Industries Association puts out call to its industry and local authorities across the UK

Alan D Miller, Chairman of the recently formed Night Time Industries Association – which brings together bar operators, gig venue owners and especially club promoters and DJ representatives – used a keynote at the Brighton Music Conference this weekend to caution against new regulations and regulatory practices that could hinder the future of what is otherwise a booming sector – ie night time entertainment.

Miller, who experienced his own issues with a local authority as owner of the Vibe Bar in East London, said: “We have seen that, despite fears ten years ago that 24 hour licensing would lead to crime and disorder, a new report from the Institute Of Economic Affairs demonstrates that crime has decreased and late night licensing has spread the offering available and contributed to a better environment for leisure, entertainment and our cities. This is a time to celebrate – not to regulate”.
