ALE Spring 2003 No. 309

St George's Day

23rd April

The revival of St George's Day, especially in relation to Guinness' heavy promotion of St Patrick's Day, seems to be progressing.

The Publican recently held an online poll in which two thirds of licensees said they'd prefer to see St George's Day become a Bank Holiday rather than St Patrick's Day (17th March).

Yet again Charles Wells (Bedford) is leading the way with a new Web site,, with practical ideas to help licensees make the most out of St George's Day.

Any licensees who are planning to mark England's national day are invited to contact the editor and details will be included in the listings on the branch Web site.
