Coronation Bank Holiday Weekend: What does this mean for hospitality?

The coronation of His Majesty The King is a momentous occasion that deserves to be celebrated throughout the country.

The recent announcement by the Government to extend licensing hours for pubs, clubs, and bars over the bank holiday weekend is a timely boost for the pub industry, which will allow them to host special events and parties as part of the national celebrations… Allowing people to enjoy an extra pint or two in the evening and for families and friends to come together to wish the king a long and happy reign.
