Relaxed licensing hours would put pubs at centre of Coronation celebrations, says BBPA

Responding to the announcement of a consultation on extended opening hours for pubs over the Coronation period, Chief Executive of the British Beer & Pub Association Emma McClarkin said: 

“The Coronation of his Majesty the King is sure to be a time for community celebration and the great British pub is at the heart of both. The opportunity to extend opening hours would allow pubs to make the absolute most of this joyous occasion and be at the centre of parties up and down the country, with people given even more chances to raise a toast to his Majesty across the three days.”
