Good Clean Fun: Going Sober at Games Week

(Premium content) Premium content

In an industry with a heavy drinking culture, what does a great alcohol-free event look like?

Creative industries work hard and play hard – often at the same time. Launches bleed into drinks, bleed into kick-ons, foment relationships both personal and profession. As Ben Eltham wrote for Artshub in 2014, bar sales subsidise a huge amount of cultural activity, from small music venues to major performing arts spaces. For independent artists, alcohol sponsorship is seen as an invaluable way to draw a curious crowd to a new show, screening venue, or launch.
