Creative Lives is partnering with Pub is the Hub and CAMRA to launch a national Pubs Welcoming Creativity campaign

Creative Lives is partnering with Pub is the Hub and CAMRA to launch a national Pubs Welcoming Creativity campaign. 

This campaign will see publicans across England opening their doors to regularly host a variety of creative activities run by local groups – anything from knitting circles to ukulele groups or poetry corners!

To kickstart this campaign, Creative Lives has produced a Welcoming Creativity Toolkit for Publicans. Pubs across England are now invited to self-certify as a ‘creativity-friendly venue’ and download a Welcoming Creativity pack from the Creative Lives website. This pack contains a ‘We welcome creativity here!’ window poster, and a ‘creativity-friendly venue’ badge for front doors and behind-the-bar. The posters are customisable with contact details, opening times … or any other useful information for potential creative partnerships!

For pubs looking for a bit more support to get started, the Toolkit for publicans also includes five inspirational case studies of pubs across England already welcoming creative activity.

We’re also inviting creativity-friendly pubs to join our online Pubs Welcoming Creativity peer support group, for those who would like to talk through ideas in a friendly online environment. Please get in touch with for more information.

All information can be found here:

You can also find a promotion pack with ready-made graphics and text to share on your social media channels.
