#NoArtistsNoArt – Lights of Soho launch campaign to save Soho as London’s bright, neon beacon of creativity.


Lights of Soho, located on Brewer St, London, is spearheading a new campaign entitled #NoArtistsNoArt, supported by local galleries, restaurants and bars around Soho that will remove or cover up every piece of art on their walls – a bleak intimation of what is happening because of the large rises in business rates, pushing out the independent operators in the surrounding area.


London Cocktail Club

The team are on a mission to support all creatives, including those in film, fashion, music, art, publishing and design, giving them a platform and venue to promote their work – for free. All profits from the bar, art sales and corporate events is put back into the venue, with the Directors and owners never taking a fee or wage in the two years of its operation.

Lights of Soho itself now needs to expand to create a self-funding, sustainable business, without which it too will struggle to survive.


The #NOARTISTSNOART campaign has been created in collaboration with M&C Saatchi and is supported by venues such as Soho House, Quo Vadis, Blacks, The Box, The London Cocktail Club, Cass Art, Balans, Randall & Aubin, Pix, Soho Radio, Save Soho and many others.



Lights of Soho Gallery opening hours:

Monday – Sunday: 10 am – 6 pm, members only from 6 pm – midnight.
