Jubilee Bank Holiay Weekend 1920
Blog

Are you prepared for the Bank Holiday Boom?

Extended licences now granted for pubs, clubs and bars

It’s time to make sure that your EPoS system is up to the test of increased Jubilee weekend footfall.

As confirmed in Parliament, pubs, clubs and bars have been granted extended opening hours from the normal 11pm to 1am on Thursday 2nd, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th June. In celebration of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the extension applies not only to alcohol sales, but also to the provision of regulated entertainment and late-night refreshment, but only where there is also the sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises.

The extension will allow revellers to mark the Jubilee and celebrate the longest-reigning monarch in the United Kingdom.

Set to be one of the biggest trading opportunities this summer, following all the restrictions of the past few years, customers want to enjoy the activities and entertainment they’ve missed out on.

Garden parties, street parties and busy beer gardens are certainly expected for the long weekend.
