Protect Our Pubs

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 politically correct 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
