Research undertaken by Motion Bristol has found that 90% of young people believe clubbing is responsible for improving their mental well-being.
The well-known Bristol venue undertook the research as part of its Keeping Bristol Moving Campaign, which aims to help people re-connect post-pandemic and offer a pathway into nightlife.
Travis Derrick, Motion’s Booker, voiced his thoughts on the campaign and its associated research, saying: With such a massive number of students recognising the importance of going out for their mental well-being, we want to make sure we’re doing everything we can to make sure no one is missing out on the nightlife scene in Bristol (and beyond).
“Motion is such a huge part of the Bristol scene, but it doesn’t come without the city’s gems which many students will discover during the first years of university. We love Bristol and want to make sure that this year’s intake of students, especially the ones that missed out on their early clubbing years, do as well.”
The results may come as no surprise to some, but with such a focus on mental health within the industry, there is a definite need to remind people to take time for themselves and do the things they love – for their own sanity.
