CAMRA is working with hundreds of pubs, including The Gregson Centre, to organise events to celebrate pub-going this summer, helping to keep the tradition alive by reminding the public how important their local is to their community.

The Gregson said: “We’re a pub, but not just a pub, we’re rooted in the heart of the community and people tell us we’re unique because we attract people from all walks of life and are a home for all.”

CAMRA’s National Chairman Nik Antona said: “It’s fantastic to see so many pubs get involved in the Summer of Pub campaign and put on events to encourage visitors through their doors this summer. From sports screenings to quiz nights and garden parties, the range of activities taking place demonstrates how unique the Great British Pub is and reminds us all why we need to work so hard to preserve it.”
