The NTIA would like to Congratulate Sacha Lord on becoming the Night Time Economy Advisor to Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham

By April 7, 2017NEWS, Uncategorized

Today we are celebrating another enormous step forward for our members and industry. In fact, it is a huge step forward for the entire country.

Around 18 months ago when Andy Burnham became the Mayor of Manchester we spent considerable time behind talking with him and his team with regard to the future of the region and how the
Night Time Economy is so crucial to it all.

Last year, we had a tremendously poignant moment where it was arranged with Mayor Burnham, Sacha Lord and the 1975 band to have a minute’s applause on stage at Parklife Festival with all the first responders in front of the audience of 100,000 to commemorate those tragically lost in the terror attacks.  Nothing could demonstrate further our collective Solidarity and how we all have common interests in standing tougher – and that Nightlife goes to the hear of our cities, streets and communities.

We have been continuously working with Mayors, Council Leaders and Stakeholders across the UK – and in particular with key cities as well as Manchester, including Glasgow, Birmingham and Bristol, to set up Night Time Commissions and explain the need for Ambassadors to all.

We are working with all to curate the 24 hour cities of the future.

This is a huge moment for us and we wish Sacha Lord, our Board Member and a veteran of Manchester and UK’s nightlife – all the very best in this new position.

Please take this moment to acknowledge, share and support across all your Socials

It would be great if you tag us @wearethentia and @mayorgm @greatermcr @sachalord  #SaveNightlife

This is how we keep changing the reality and the landscape for our industry – to make Britain a better place for all.

We need everyone to join and support us!
