Sankeys launches UK Campaign to Launch New Venues



The Nighttime Industries Associations Partner & Sankeys have joined together to Launch the Campaign #DoYouWannaSankeys, which aims to open more clubs around the UK.

In the past 10 years almost 50% of Nightclubs have shut their doors, with even Sankeys losing their very first home in Manchester just last week, with many fearing we are fast-losing a vital part of our heritage and national identity. Nightclubs and music venues are where we dance, fall in love and first incubate the new music and culture of the future and they must be protected.

The campaign, which will give music lovers the chance to vote and bring a Sankeys club or event series to their area. The more support an area gets the more investment and activity Sankeys will bring to their nightlife scene. This will provide people with a voice on a subject that millions of Brit’s feel very passionate about.

Alan Miller, Chairman of the The Night Time Industries Association saysWe are proud to be working with the team for Sankeys across Britain. Just one week after the world found out the shocking news that Sankeys in Manchester was closing after over 20 years –  now 20 cities in UK have the chance for a new club. Upbeat, fun and engaging this is what Saving Nightlife is all about. So #Doyouwannasankeys…? Join the campaign have your voice heard & then also sign our petition at www.savenightlife.com. As we have seen recently with Fabric, Together We Are Strong

The first round of the campaign will center on 20 towns and cities – which you can find at the projects website www.doyouwannasankeys.co.uk

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
