The owners of the MA's Great British Pub of the Year 2010 will be presenting at the next Freehouse 500 business club event on 18 October.

The day's line-up also includes BII Licensees of the Year 2010 Loren and Richard Pope, of the Bull's Head, Repton; Ben Jones of the Olive Branch in Clipsham, Rutland; and Glyn Williams, of the Crown at Woodbridge, Suffolk — winner of the Alastair Sawday's Pub with Rooms Awards who will be looking at ideas for accommodation, outside catering and "spork dining".
