Last weekend, trial club nights in Liverpool were deemed a success by one Notts student who attended, it has since prompted discussion about how events can be held in Nottingham within the near future.
There is a plea for pilot events in the city as the nights are held to determine whether non-social distanced events with no masks in place, have an impact on infection, if everybody who attends enters with a negative test result.
After speaking to one of the festival attendees, the idea for a Nottingham based event is wanted but also questionable on the basis of if it’s necessarily needed, even though the Liverpool event was one of the best within the city.
Tamzin Bourke, Nottingham resident, whom currently studies at Liverpool University, said: “It was amazing and felt insane to be back.
“The fact all my mates were in one place having a boogy together made it so good.
“At first I was comprehensive but once I got in there it felt so normal, I just had to have proof of a negative test from the day before and show the text on the door.”
When speaking to Tamzin about her experience, she added about why she would like to see one of these pilot events held in Nottingham, but having them take place in different amount of capacity.
She added, “I think we have to wait and see if there is a spike in cases in Liverpool, we have to do another test up to five days after, so we should not take advantage of the situation.
We’re less than two weeks away from the next step in the roadmap out of lockdown, with hopes in sight still for June, 21 when all coronavirus restrictions will be lifted and festivals and nightclubs can finally re-open.
Whether or not Nottingham will allow for early trial events of this kind, is still a big debate for the city.
