Pubs of Preston get ready to celebrate the royal wedding
April 8, 2011 by Michael
Plans are underway throughout Preston to celebrate the royal wedding later this month. The wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton on 29th April has grabbed the attention of the nation and Preston is a good cross section of the country to showcase what might be on offer throughout the UK on that extra bank holiday in April. Local pubs and bars such as The Angel in Lune Street are planning a whole weekend of celebrations, starting on Thursday night and going through until Sunday. These celebrations are a direct response to changes in licensing laws which will allow licensed premises and public houses to stay open until 1am on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th of April thanks to the Draft Licensing Act 2003. Many other pubs in the city are also planning themed fun days and events, including The Adelphi and Roper Hall.
These events would benefit from promotional material being distributed, for example, the publicans hosting these events could call upon the services of local companies who provide flyer printing in Preston. Whilst the change in licensing hours will be a boost to these establishments, there will be fierce competition between venues. Mike Thorpe, the head of Preston’s Council licensing department is in support of the longer licensing hours and has said that there will no doubt be a fantastic atmosphere at these celebrations. With the right kind of flyer printing, Preston public houses can attract the right kinds of customers to their royal wedding events and ensure that people are able to plan their bank holiday celebrations in advance.
