Bath Night Life Research
A researcher spent three weeks conducting interviews with people who worked for, or were part of the many agencies and organisations involved in the Bath night life. Questionnaires and interviews were recorded with young people that use the night life facilities. Consideration was also given to the research of others regarding the night time economy of Bath. The major findings were an exposure of the many issues that arise over the course of the evening. These issues often relate to the consumption of alcohol and range from low level littering to large scale brawls. Many young people and a majority of those employed in night life related jobs thought that it would be good for the church to be involved in this culture and that more could be done to tackle the related issues. Initiatives were discussed aiming to establish the best way for the church to have a role alongside other agencies in the context of the night life of Bath. Conclusions were drawn and some key recommendations are suggested.
