Brits spending more on nights out but going out less often

Brits are spending 8.9% more on a night out than they did a year ago, but are going out less often, according to the latest Deltic Night index.

Average spend has reached £67.05 with increases seen across food, transport, entry fees and in-venue drinks.

However only 53.9% of people are going out at least once a week, down from 60.1% a year ago.

The index also asked consumers about how safe they felt on a night out with increases in public transport late at night, street lighting and a greater police presence all cited as measures that would increase revellers' feeling of security.

However 55.6% of respondents said they considered themselves to be most responsible for their safety when out.

Peter Marks, chief executive of the Deltic Group, commented: "We know safety is a key priority for both operators and consumers, and we have always worked with all local stakeholders to ensure this is the case. But this data shows that there is an opportunity for operators and local authorities to come together to help create an environment that feels even more safe."
