Today (30th September) we have been made aware that Switch nightclub are promoting an event where the artist, Wiley is expected to perform. Although the event is promoted as a UCLan Freshers event neither the University or the Students’ Union has any involvement in planning, delivering or promoting of this event.
UCLan Students’ Union sometimes signposts students to external events being run across the city, but we are always clear that these events are external to us and are not run by us. We are also able to confirm that this Switch club night was not one of these events.
We condemn all forms of antisemitism and given the previous actions of Wiley, which include a series of antisemitic social media posts, we strongly encourage Switch to cancel this event and reconsider any further ties with Wiley and his management.
