Deficit pubblico

Nel 2005 nel Regno Unito vi erano 3,000 locali notturni, discoteche incluse, che nel giugno 2022 si erano ridotti a 1,130. È uno dei tanti segni del declino economico

Secondo l’Associazione delle Industrie del Tempo Notturno (NTIA), il numero di locali notturni in Inghilterra, Scozia e Galles è sceso al minimo in oltre due decenni, con una chiusura su cinque negli ultimi tre anni. Se nel marzo 2020 erano stati registrati 1.418 locali aperti, nel giugno 2022 sono scesi a 1.130, dopo che i locali sono stati costretti a chiudere a causa della pandemia.

L’Inghilterra centrale e il Galles centrale hanno registrato un numero particolarmente elevato di chiusure negli ultimi tre anni, passando da 209 nel marzo 2020 a 150 nel giugno 2022 – un calo del 39%. Londra continua ad avere la più alta concentrazione di club di tutto il Regno Unito, con 221 registrati a giugno di quest’anno, sebbene anche questa cifra sia diminuita rispetto ai 497 del 2006.

L’indebitamento pandemico, le crescenti bollette energetiche, le sfide della forza lavoro, la catena di approvvigionamento, l’aumento dei premi assicurativi, le pressioni dei proprietari e gli aumenti dei costi dei prodotti. Le pressioni sui costi operativi, unite al fatto che i consumatori hanno meno reddito disponibile, hanno visto le prime fasi di una recessione con un rallentamento delle vendite dei biglietti e della frequenza dei visitatori. Come mostra il nostro grafico, i locali notturni sono in declino nel Regno Unito da ben prima della pandemia. Per questo motivo i locali sono stati costretti a chiudere definitivamente i battenti.

Night Clubs on the Decline in the UK.

The number of nightclubs in England, Scotland and Wales has dropped to its lowest in more than two decades, with one in five having closed over the past three years, according to the Night Time Industries Association (NTIA). Where 1,418 clubs were recorded as open in March 2020, this dropped to 1,130 in June 2022, after clubs were forced to shut down with the pandemic.

Central England and Central Wales saw a particularly high number of closures over the past three years, falling from 209 in March 2020 to 150 in June 2022 – a 39 percent decrease. London still has the highest concentration of clubs of anywhere in the UK, with 221 recorded in June of this year, although even that figure has fallen from 497 in 2006.

The NTIA explains that this decline comes down to a “perfect storm” of events, namely, “pandemic debt, growing energy bills, workforce challenges, supply chain, increased insurance premiums, landlord pressures and product cost increases.” The future outlook doesn’t look much better, as the trade body reports: “Operating cost pressures coupled with consumers with less disposable income have seen the early stages of a recession with slowing ticket sales and visitor frequency.”

As our chart shows, night clubs have been on the decline in the UK since well before the pandemic. Oxford University paper Cherwell cites “redevelopment programs, rising rents and unsympathetic councils” all as reasons clubs have been eventually forced to shut their doors for good.
