As reported by The Morning Advertiser, parliament announced that pubs will be able to extend their opening hours throughout the weekend of the royal wedding following the approval of the Licensing Act 2003 (Royal Wedding Licensing Hours) Order 2018 on 1 May.
The Gardeners Arms, which will be changing its name to ‘The Harry’ over the course of the summer, will be showing the ceremony between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on Saturday (19 May), as well as extensive coverage of Harry Kane and co in action in Russia this summer.
The venue has introduced new signs and decoration to celebrate both.
Spurs striker Kane, widely tipped to captain England at the World Cup this summer, has scored 12 times in 23 appearances for England.
The Tottenham and England front man, who was pipped to this season’s golden boot by Liverpool’s Mo Salah despite notching his best strike rate for a single Premier League season with 30 goals, spent a brief period on loan at the Gardeners Arms’ local side Norwich City.
Discussing the new name and sign, the Gardeners Arms’ Philip Cutter said: “It has proved a real talking point at the pub.
“Having such a unique name for our pub has always brought a massive interest in our pub sign, but to have the temporary change of name to 'The Harry' with such striking images has made the sign particularly photogenic.
“We have a life size cut-out of him, which we will be using to promote 'selfies' to share on social media, with the best winning a bar tab for the World Cup final.
“We also commissioned a local artist to paint our front windows - depicting World Cup joy or pain.”
