STEaPP in Conversation with Amy Lamé

Fit for the Future: London as a Leading 24hr City

Night Czar and UCL Honorary Professor Amy Lamé discusses the challenges and opportunites London faces as a global leader of 24hr cities.

She will discuss London’s first ever 24hr office, the London Model and how it relates to other cities with similar offices; the roles policy, licensing, safety and diversity play in a healthy night time ecosystem, and how the Night Time Commission’s recommendations – published in January 2018 - set the agenda for Londoners' lives at night.

Speaker Biography

Amy has a long and successful track record as a leader and collaborator in the cultural and creative industries. She is co-founder of the Olivier Award winning arts company and club night Duckie, and co-founded RVT Future, a voluntary LGBT+ community group campaigning to preserve the iconic Royal Vauxhall Tavern.

She served as Mayoress of Camden in 2010-2011, and spent her year highlighting the history and culture of live music and nightlife in the borough. Amy is a familiar presence on TV, in print and on radio. She broadcasted for a decade on BBC Radio London, and now hosts Sunday afternoons on BBC6 Music.

Her debut book, From Prejudice to Pride: A History of the LGBT+ Movement – the first LGBT+ history book for children – was published by Hachette in June 2017.

In 2018, Amy was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from University of East London (UEL) and appointed Honorary Professor at University College London (UCL). Originally from New Jersey, Amy has been a proud Londoner for over 25 years. She has served as London’s first Night Czar since 2016.
