Join us at this inspiring, free event at The Bevy, Brighton where you’ll hear more about the support available to new community pub businesses and groups exploring community ownership of their local pub.
Opened in December 2014, The Bevy was the first community owned and run estate pub in the UK and is a fantastic example of a pub which is much more than a pub with activities taking place offering a wealth of opportunities to bring the community together and providing a welcoming space for everyone living locally.
With community lunches every day, children’s cookery courses, weekly digital drop-in sessions, dementia-friendly creative sessions, a weekly running group followed by a time to chat at the pub afterwards, arts and crafts sessions, a ‘bridge the gap’ lunch for over 50’s, there really is something for everyone.
On this study visit you’ll have an opportunity to take a tour of the pub and hear first-hand about the incredible work that is undertaken there to bring everyone in the community together and find inspiration about activities that you can plan for your own community pub to help it become a real hub for local people.
One of Plunkett’s friendly, expert advisers will give you a warm welcome you to the event and will talk you through the support and resources available to your community and to answer any questions that you have.
Travel bursaries available, 1 per community group up to £120, to be applied for prior to the event.
Light refreshments will be served as part of the event.
