A pub is the heart of the community
A pub holds a pretty special place in the hearts of its customers. Whatever’s going on in the world, whatever the weather is like outside, a local pub is somewhere everyone can come together and enjoy a drink and some company–and that’s a special thing to be a part of.
Pubs often hold events for the community, whether that’s a weekly quiz night, a gin tasting, karaoke or a singles night. These events can make a fun backdrop to your shift, attracting extra customers and delivering plenty of entertainment for staff as well as punters, plus delivering you all the local gossip first.
If you’re a sports fan, working during one of sports’ biggest events such as the World Cup or the Euros can be a great way to watch the games. Whereas office or retail workers may have to miss the matches–particularly if they fall during an afternoon–not only can you keep up with what’s happening, you can enjoy the special atmosphere that only a crowd of fans watching live sport can create.
And then there’s the C word–Christmas! Pubs get really festive long before the big day itself and are packed out with work dos, family meals and other Christmassy gatherings. Everything you need to get in the Christmas spirit before you can say ‘ho ho ho’!
