We will be cancelling this Wednesday's CRISIS event to offer our solidarity and support for the 'Girls Night In' campaign. All tickets that have already been purchased will automatically be refunded.
We believe that all women have the right to enjoy themselves on a night out and not to be in fear of being 'spiked' or other abusive behaviour so we decided that we should cancel CRISIS this week to raise awareness of the campaign. At the same time, we are continuing to work with the Police and local authorities to eradicate this problem.
As of last week, CRISIS has implemented a search system on entry including bag searches and metal detectors; anti-spiking bottle stoppers and protective drinks covers available free of charge with all drinks at the bars. We are improving staff training and have changed the way we handle incident reporting at our events to better look after our customers. We will work tirelessly to continue to improve these measures over the coming weeks.
All new safety provisions are in addition to existing CCTV camera systems to share with the police in aid of any investigations, in-house club medic and welfare response teams. Anyone suspected of spiking or entering CRISIS with the intention to carry out spiking will be detained and the police informed.
The Halloween AllFrighter event will go ahead as scheduled this Sunday. No other events are affected.By CRISIS
