'A pub for everyone'

CAMRA plans 'National Pubs Week' in February

Jan 16, 2003 - CAMRA, Great Britain's Campaign for Real Ale, will launch the first ever "National Pubs Week" beginning Feb. 22.


The aim of National Pubs Week is to encourage more people to visit pubs more often. New research compiled by CAMRA shows 20 pubs close every month and over a quarter of adults (27%) NEVER visit a pub.

"The aim of National Pubs Week is simple -- to encourage people to visit pubs more regularly," said Mike Benner, CAMRA's Head of Campaigns. "Its slogan is 'There's a pub for everyone' and we seek to highlight the enormous variety of pubs in the UK. We are not only supporting the quaint country pubs but also community and town centre pubs as we want all of the pub industry to benefit from this initiative."

CAMRA, and a number of industry partners, are currently encouraging as many pubs throughout Britain to take part in National Pubs Week and organize a variety of events throughout the week to encourage more people to attend pubs more regularly.
