    The Evening Economy: Critical to Town Centre Vitality and Viability?

    The evening economy is a significant contributor to economic performance and is a growing sector at a time when much of the economy, including the retail sector, is struggling.

In fact, it contributes £66bn to the national economy, which represents a third of town and city centre turnover.
