Last Friday Night

Posted by Naomi Bennett on 29 April 2014

Planet London has been working with event organisers now for nearly 3 years. We have been helping in a variety of ways from just listing events, to running promotional campaigns, to providing consultancy services and training on how to promote an event to the LBQ community. Since we launched in 2011 the number of events available in London has increased significantly. Whilst there are still some gaps (more nights for the 30+ market are definitely required) the scene is definitely on the up. The best thing is it isn't all about quantity. We are also seeing more being added to nights. Club nights such as Bridge Girls LateBoi BoxWotever andDownGirls are offering entertainment so the price of entry really does go a long way.
