Save Our Pubs

Pubs are under threat of extinction


New restrictions on pubs, clubs and other hospitality venues across the UK are being bought in as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Without immediate financial support from the UK and devolved Governments we could lose thousands of our locals.

Pubs have been operating at a reduced level, and many licensees have invested thousands to make their premises COVID-secure. Devolved Governments and the UK Government have extended some support for pubs affected by local lockdowns and new restrictions, but it won’t be enough to prevent closures.

You can click the buttons below to take part in our campaign. This will let you email your elected representatives and ask them to urge the Government to ensure that pubs are given fast and comprehensive financial support. You don’t have to be a CAMRA member to take part, so please share as widely as you can on social media. We want to make sure that we reach as many people as possible.

Save our Pubs

CAMRA campaigns to save the Great British Pub from extinction.

We’ve used the ‘Pulling Together’ campaign to try and ensure the survival of pubs through the COVID-19 crisis, but we also want to see long-term change so pubs can thrive in the future.

The value of pubs cannot be overstated. The pub and beer industry supports nearly 900,000 jobs in the UK and contributes £23.6bn to the UK economy annually.

CAMRA commissioned research from Oxford University which found that people who have a local pub are happier, have more friends and feel more engaged with their local communities. Many pubs help provide space for the local people to meet, tackle loneliness, and strengthen the local community.
