Clubbers Go out Less: A-Level Business in the News

20th February 2024

Have a go at this teaching activity, which includes a downloadable worksheet and suggested answers.

Students' classic weekend of cheap drinks and dancing in crowded clubs is increasingly a thing of the past

The UK's largest nightclub operator, Rekom UK, has closed many of its Pryzm and Atik clubs due to the cost-of-living crisis hitting young people's spending.

However, major events like Glastonbury Festival still sell out fast, showing demand for big nights out remains. Concerts and outdoor venues are also drawing big crowds, as people save up to splurge on special experiences.

Industry experts say clubbers are going out less frequently, but make the most of bigger nights. Students are happy to skip weeks of clubbing to save up for expensive festivals instead.

More closures are expected across hospitality as disposable incomes fall.

Some new clubs opening aim to provide a top-notch night out as people cut back on average nights.

Students say they pre-drink before going out due to high club drink prices. They tend to only go clubbing on discounted weeknights now rather than every weekend.
