As part of our series of talks, we thought it necessary to shed a little more light into the health of clubbing scene and how it has changed in the capital and across the nation over the last 5-10 years.

The themes of this talk will include:
- How the closure of major clubs has affected the scene
- How the scene has changed compared to 10+ years ago
- What can people do to continue to keep the nightlife/clubbing scene healthy
- Where do we see clubbing going?

For our talks we are inviting people from across the music industry to join our panel and help discuss these issues and topics. Our panelists include:

Amy Alsop & Andy Blake (World Unknown) - Amy and Andy have been throwing World Unknown parties in ever changing venues and warehouses across the capital for years.
