Pub is The Hub will be a supporting partner with National Hospitality Day, which takes place this Saturday (18 September), to recognise the important role played by publicans in their local areas.
The day is a nationwide celebration of the brilliant and resilient pubs, bars, hotels, restaurants and foodservice outlets, and the suppliers that support them.
Venues are being encouraged to showcase all that is good about the sector to their customers by running events and activities.
This day marks the first time the sector’s main associations, bodies and charities have joined forces. Other participating organisations include UKHospitality, The Institute of Hospitality, the British Beer & Pub Association and the British Institute of Innkeeping.
Charity partners include the UK hospitality’s four main charities: The Drinks Trust, Hospitality Action, The Licensed Trade Charity and The Springboard Charity.
Pub is The Hub chief executive John Longden said: “It has been a challenging time for the pub and wider hospitality sector and National Hospitality Day will be a support to those businesses.
“Many independent publicans went above and beyond to help their local communities when the pandemic hit. We need to support those businesses moving forward and help them on the road to recovery.”
Mark Lewis, chief executive of Hospitality Action, which conceived the concept, said: “On one amazing day, we’re going to spark the mother of all parties – and all to help the businesses that have been thrown to their knees by Covid-19, and the people who work in them.”
