There are now no more sleeps until the Best of British-themed Great British Pub Awards and the excitement is at breaking point.

The hashtag you need to use will be, as always, #pubawards​ and don’t forget to include a Twitter handle – @morningad​.

Award-winning stand-up comedian and star of Mock the Week​, 8 out of 10 Cats​ and QI​, Katherine Ryan will be our host​, so expect laughs aplenty with this funny woman.


The winning, locally inspired cocktail from this year’s Future Trends: Spirits​ will be available for you to sample. East by North East was made by Tom Proud from Pleased to Meet You in Newcastle.

There will be a drinks list on the table where you can order your tipples from via your wine waiter so no need to even leave your seat.

Fun and games

We are bringing back rock ’n’ roll bingo to raise money for this year’s chosen charity Pub is the Hub.

Sticking with the Best of British theme, a 'Best of British' covers band will keep the celebrations going into the night at the after party.

Make memories of the evening at the Kegstar Selfie Wall and take photos of yourself with colleagues, besties and new-found friends.

An added incentive to get your face on camera is the competition with Kegstar​ where you have the chance to win a keg full of one of its customer’s craft beers.

Simply download the app, scan the QR code from the keg with the app, take a screenshot of the pop-up that appears and tweet using #KegstarGBPA​.
