Westminster at Night

How inclusive is nightlife in Westminster? Have you or your friends ever experienced discrimination on a night out?

Westminster City Council has launched a new Task Group to help us understand people’s experience of nightlife in the City. We want to hear from you about your experience.

Councillor Iain Bott, Chairman of the Task Group said: “Discrimination has no place in our nightclubs, and the council is determined to do everything in our power to keep our night life inclusive and vibrant.

“We have established this task group to look into the inclusiveness of Westminster’s night life, and I would like to urge Westminster’s club goers to tell us their stories. To really understand this issue we need first-hand accounts along with expert testimony, and these stories will help us build a more welcoming night out for everyone.”

Councillors from the City Management and Public Protection Policy and Scrutiny Committee will form the task group with input from experts. They’ll focus on three main areas:

  • The experience of visitors, residents and workers and the barriers to inclusion
  • The work that the industry is doing to address any barriers
  • How local public agencies and partners can help support and improve inclusivity

The group is seeking views and evidence from local residents, visitors and workers in Westminster
