Sacha Lord is Night Time Economy Adviser for Greater Manchester, Chair of the Night Time Industries Association and Chair of Wythenshawe F.C, Co-Founder of The Warehouse Project and Co-Founder of Parklife - the UK’s largest metropolitan festival.
His events have hosted some of the biggest names in music, including Snoop Doff, Liam Gallagher and Skepta.
In his role as Greater Manchester’s first-ever Night Time Economy Adviser, Sacha works with Mayor Andy Burnham and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, consulting on all issues relating to the Night Time Economy and providing a voice for workers, operators and the industry at large.
Sacha Lord appointed JMW Solicitors in January of 2023 to start the process of forming The Sacha Lord Foundation.
Headed up by his wife, Demi, the Foundation will support young people from Greater Manchester, who like Sacha, did not or could not go down the conventional education route.
The Foundation will be focused on supporting and carving out careers in the Events or Hospitality sector. Charity Number: 1204808. It launches Spring 2024. More information coming soon…
The Parklife Community Fund is run in collaboration with Manchester, Bury and Rochdale councils.
In 5 years, it has raised just under £300k for local community groups and priority is given to groups and projects that utilise parks and open spaces and/or work with young people.
This is something that Sacha feels particularly proud of.
