NTIA and Skiddle announce nightlife bursaries

Event promotion and editorial platform, Skiddle has announced the introduction of a £50,000 bursary fund to kickstart the events industry – as part of a new collaboration with the Night-Time Industries Association (NTIA). 

The ‘Skiddle Event Revival Fund’ is in partnership with the NTIA and will be dispersed to event promoters and organisers within the UK. The aim is to support the rebuild of the nightlife and hospitality industry in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The money will support organisers hosting events in nightclubs and bars who have seen their revenue collapse over the past two years. A huge loss of earnings has seen several event organisers fall foul of the crisis. 

Skiddle and NTIA are looking for experienced organisers planning to host events this Autumn and wish to add to the consumer experience to build a bigger and better show. The aim is to revitalise the sector and reinstall a love for live events. 

The fund proposal has gone through rigorous research before being launched. The findings support its activation. 

Ben Sebborn, CTO at Skiddle said: “We know firsthand how hard the industry has been hit in the last eighteen months, and now we can host and attend events once more. We want to make them the best we possibly can. We hope that the bursaries enable promoters and event organisers to put on an amazing series of events around the UK that may not have been possible without this financial support.” 

Michael Kill, CEO NTIA added: “The Night Time Economy and Events sector has continually been at the sharp end of the pandemic. We are now able to plan for the future, with the removal of challenging mitigations we can focus on supporting grassroots promoters in building back and re-establishing a world-leading industry across the UK. We hope this bursary will help grassroots promoters to re-invigorate their commitment and inspire new entrepreneurs to invest in the future of the events industry.” 

The bursaries are available for promoters, events or venues who plan to host this Autumn, and can show how the additional finance will enhance the consumer experience.
