Our Values

Our core values are at the heart of everything that we do.


We proactively engage with several initiatives as part of our ongoing commitments to safety, community engagement and sustainability.


The Welfare And Vulnerability Engagement (WAVE) training program is designed to equip individuals in the licensed industry with an understanding of vulnerability, as well as their obligations and strategies to address it.

We train our management team on these principles.

Defence Employer Recognition Scheme

The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same.

As a business, we understand the value that members of the defence community can bring. We actively recruit and train current and former members.

Ask for Angela

“Ask for Angela” is a public-facing initiative that enables individuals who feel threatened or unsafe to discreetly request assistance by using the codeword “Angela”. By mentioning this codeword, they can alert a trained staff member to their situation, who can then provide the necessary discreet assistance.

Our team are trained and briefed on the scheme.

Attitude is Everything

Connecting disabled people with music and live events to improve accessibility. We want the music industries valuing disabled people as an audience.


We work with a variety of organisations around the UK & Ireland
