The Rainbow Venues have announced their #educatenotrevocate campaign which includes steps to appealing, fundraising and a festival focusing on preventing drug abuse and helping the nightlife industry. 

The Rainbow Warehouse, The Blackbox, The Roof Garden, The Arena and CRANE have all been closed whilst the team appeal against the revocation of their license. 

With 350,000 visitors this year already, over 65 members of staff and a direct input of over 2 million pounds to the local economy last year, the closure of The Rainbow Venues is a devastating blow for Birmingham's night time economy. 

Their statement says: 

"We would like to profousely apologise to all our promoters, artists, agents and customers that have experienced any inconveniences or problems that have occurred as a result of The Rainbow Venues being forced to cancel shows. 

"We don’t want to silence our voice. We want our voice to be heard and we want to see if we can make a difference." 

The campaign will see The Rainbow Venues appeal the decision to revoke their license, something which can cost hundreds of thousands of pounds and can take up to four months. 

Because of this, the team are asking for funds, something which will also prevent suppliers of The Rainbow Venues going into administration and to help begin a landmark annual festival to create a universal voice. 

The objective of the festival is to prevent the use of drug abuse through educational measures, save venues, encourage young entrepreneurs and change how authorities view youth culture and nightlife industry and behaviour. Profits will go towards supporting and enhancing the UK’s nightlife industry and drug-help organisations who aim to educate and assist.
