This Wednesday 5 Dec 2018, the NTIA gathers members at Red Bull London to honour its Ambassadors of The Night.

Panellists during the evening included Access editor Tom Hall speaking on a panel discussing the value of festivals to local economies.

The Night Time Economy is worth in excess of £70bn per annum across Britain.

More than simply revenue and the creation of jobs and regeneration of areas and cities, it is also recognised for its key role in our ‘Cultural Capital’.

The winners were:

1. Chris Hill – Greater Manchester Police, City
2. Jon Drape – Ground Control
3. Warehouse Project – Sacha Lord
4. Fiona Measham, The Loop
5. Jamal Edwards, SBTV
6. Nicola Johnston, Aberdeen Inspired

8. Brixton BID, Michael Smith
9. Susan Aitken, Council Leader Glasgow City Council
10. Norman Jay MBE
11. Mirik Milan
12 Harvey Goldsmith
13. Special Award, Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson

“These awards across a cross section of Stakeholders recognizing Police Forces, Council Leaders, Business Improvement Districts, Mayors and Citizens as well as music and nightlife industry represent the enormous steps forward we have made in Britain. Nightlife lights up our streets, brings revenue and jobs, promotes culture and is a part of who we are. Lets all be Ambassadors of The Night,” said Alan Miller, Chairman of The Night Time Industries.
