Don't miss the encore

Our music fan poll discovered that fans up and down the UK were indeed leaving and missing out on the end of gigs – often the best bit – because they had to rush for their last train, babysitter or to beat the crowds.  A third of the nation has had to leave a gig before the end and one in ten people said they missed the all-important encore. The good news is that this is avoidable. With hotels near to all the major music venues in London, you never need to miss the encore again. Simply find out where the nearest Premier Inn hotel is to the gig venue and make a good night great!
