Answered By: 
The Mayor

Amy Lamé was appointed as Night Czar in November 2016 and has proved to be an excellent appointee.

In just nine months she has achieved a number of successes including publishing a vision of London as a 24-hour global city; launching guidance on how boroughs can protect London's nightlife; and holding Night Surgeries in Croydon, Kingston, Hackney and Waltham Forest, and on the Night Tube between Wood Green and Heathrow, to speak directly with night workers, businesses and local councillors. She has developed an LGBT+ Venues Charter and has been working closely with community groups, councils and developers to help safeguard venues including Molly Moggs and The Joiner's Arms. She has alo hosted London's first Women's Night Safety Summit to develop a Women's Night Safety Charter and has carried out numerous engagements to support and advocate for London's night time economy and culture.

Following this fantastic start, she has a number of exciting upcoming plans. I will be reviewing her contract before the end of the year.
