Pub Events Ideas 2019

This year, there are tons of events, sporting competitions, and seasonal celebrations to be adding into your pub calendar to ensure you make the most of 2019. To prepare for all the pub events and ensure you’re stocked up with everything you need to maximise revenue this year, check out our list!


Dry January

Dry January, the annual fad is becoming more popular each year as millions of people are beginning to take part by giving up alcohol for a whole month. There has been talk that Dry January doesn’t actually benefit your health as much as we think. Bustle advises us to have at least three alcohol-free days a week rather than cutting it out completely. But that’s not stopping people from having their annual post-Christmas cleanse. Alongside this, people tend to stay inside instead of going out in January, as many people associate pubs with alcohol, and they don’t want to be going there and realising what they’re missing out on.

Suggested drinks: Mocktails, Alcohol free beer, soft drinks,


Super Bowl LIII – Sunday 3rd of February

This February the 53rd annual Superbowl will be held on our TV’s. Conveniently just in time for everyone who has suffered a month without alcohol. If you’re licensed to show the sport fixtures across your pub TV’s why not hold a super bowl extravaganza? Invite your locals down and ensure you have all the popular American-styled drinks stocked up! Alternatively, if you don’t currently have any TV’s in your pub or bar, take a look at the multiple screens we can provide.
