Club venues benefit from licenced door staff

The number of planned unlicensed music events in London recorded by the Metropolitan Police nearly doubled between 2016 and 2017, according to figures obtained by the Sunday Telegraph using freedom of information legislation.

The rise has has been linked to the decline of traditional licensed venues, with half of the capital’s nightclubs having closed in the past decade, according to City Hall.

The rising cost of drinks in legitimate venues has also been blamed for the return of rave culture.

Plans for 133 illegal raves were identified by the Met in 2017, up from 70 the previous year.
