National Hospitality Day – 18th September, 2021

Hospitality Action have joined forces with a taskforce of the hospitality industry’s main trade associations, professional bodies and charities to launch National Hospitality Day. They are asking the nation to support this beleaguered sector by visiting their favourite venue on 18th September to celebrate National Hospitality Day.

How the sector decides to support this is up to each business who wishes to take part. Activities could be as ambitious as hosting a gala dinner with guest chefs or arranging a Q&A with a local celebrity. Or they could be as modest as laying on free nibbles and entertainment, or cooking a hog roast in the garden. Whatever you decide, the common aim is for participating businesses to showcase the industry at its best; creative, entertaining, nourishing, engaging – at the hub of our communities, and providing jobs and income for the county.

They are asking all participating businesses to build a fundraising element into their activities, to support UK hospitality’s four main charities; The Drinks Trust, Hospitality Action, The Licensed Trade Charity and The Springboard Charity. By doing so, you’ll be helping them to support those hit by the pandemic with financial assistance, mental health support and career development.

For National Hospitality Day to succeed hospitality businesses need to join together.
