Evening & Night Time Economy

TBR and night-time economy specialists MAKE have undertaken the first research ever to look at the value and reach of the UK's evening and night-time economy (NTE).

Our own dataset (TCR)

TBR maintains its own extensive core data resource (Trends Central Resource: TCR), which captures fundamental information on around 6.5 million businesses, past and present, and their dynamics. The dataset is the largest longitudinal dataset in the UK on business and as such is a core resource for consistent and robust time series analysis.

TCR is an incredibly powerful tool to understand the nature, scale and dynamics of local, regional and national economies across the UK. As such, we can expediently provide geographical and sectoral detail to address evidence gaps and provide up to date research and analysis.
