GOOD NIGHT OUT INITIATIVE LAUNCHES TO TACKLE SEXUAL HARRASSMENT

A London-wide project is under way to prevent harassment in clubs, bars and venues.

Good Night Out is the first ever campaign of its kind in the UK capital, and clubs and venues such as Fabric, Village Underground, Ministry of Sound, Alibi and Dance Tunnel are already backing it.

Posters informing patrons of this zero-tolerance approach to any form of harassment are now being displayed in venues across London, and establishments including Ministry of Sound and Fabric have signed the following pledge:

"We want you to have a great night out. No matter how minor it seems, if something or someone makes you feel uncomfortable, you can report it to a member of our staff. They will believe you and make sure it doesn’t have to ruin your night."

Kirsti Weir from Fabric had this to say on the work being done by Good Night Out and Hollaback London:

"We've always had a zero tolerance harassment policy and we've been working with Hollaback London to boost our patrons' awareness of our commitment to stamping it out with our online campaign and highly visible posters. It's great that the Good Night Out campaign is a collaborative effort across London and it's something we fully support and endorse."

Good Night Out is now urging people to tweet their experiences in venues around London using the hashtag #goodnightout.
