BBPA response to announcement of extended opening hours across Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend

Responding to the announcement of extended opening hours for pubs over the Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend, Chief Executive of the British Beer & Pub Association Emma McClarkin said:

“This is fantastic news for the pub industry. After a difficult two years, pubs everywhere already had plans to make the most of the Platinum Jubilee by hosting special events and parties, and this announcement of extended opening hours will be a further boost to an already joyous occasion.

“It is sure to be a time for community and celebration and the great British pub is at the heart of both, so I would encourage everyone to head down to their local and raise a toast to Her Majesty at some point across the Jubilee weekend.”


Notes to editors

The BBPA estimates the Jubilee weekend with extended opening hours will see pubs sell an extra 13.1million pints across the four days.
