Protect Our Pubs | 2009

Pub Nationalisation Project

During 2007, The Hare & Hounds, Kings Heath became the HQ for the Protect our Pubs campaign. This was premised on a single fictional conceit: that all English pubs were to be nationalised by 2010.

POP temporarily converted The Hare and Hounds to show what a state run pub would be like. Pub nationalisation at The Hare & Hounds involved:

  • Changing the pubs name to the more p.c. The Care & Hounds
  • Specimen government posters
  • A Smartest Barperson Competition
  • Ultra Safe Ultra Fun Pub Games (Group Suduku; Gently Push A Pound)
  • A Nanny State 0% Ale
