You may be well into the process of setting-up or have just opened your pub’s doors, or perhaps your community is in the very early stages, either way this event is for you.

Workshop sessions

We are pleased to have experts from across the community pub sector running afternoon workshop sessions exploring key issues, for example choosing and implementing an operating structure that’s right for your community pub, how to navigate the planning system and work with local partners and gaining funding including the More Than A Pub loans and grants. You’ll choose the two workshops you’d like to attend on the day at registration from 10.00 am.

Please note that this is a free event, but as places are limited, if you are no longer able to attend please let us know at least 7 days before the conference so that we can offer your place to someone else. Please book online by clicking the purple 'book' button below
