Amy Lamé has been unveiled as London’s first night czar by Mayor Sadiq Khan.

The performer and broadcaster will be working closely with Khan, the Night Time Commission, businesses, councils, Met Police and Transport for London to make London a “24-hour city”. There will be a series of monthly “night surgeries” to meet businesses, workers, residents and revellers to shape her action plan.

With Amy’s background in co-presenting on BBC London for more than a decade, running for selection as Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Dulwich and West Norwood in 2014 and as mayor of Camden between 2010-11, while also being an LGBT activist, and leading the campaign to save the Royal Vauxhall Tavern from developers, she is the perfect choice for the job and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for London.
