Sacha Lord, the Night-Time Economy Advisor for Greater Manchester, has announced he will provide an hour’s FREE DRINKS at the Adelphi Lads Club this Sunday evening between 5pm and 6pm.

Situated on North George Street, the Adelphi Lads Club is the first venue for Sacha Lord’s ‘Hospitality Hour’, a campaign created to thank Manchester pub-goers who have loyally supported the sector over the past two years.

Talking about this initiative Lord said: “This is all about getting together and thanking the people of Greater Manchester for their support over the past two and a half years. As a city region, we suffered tougher restrictions than any other during the pandemic, and now with the difficult economic environment, our operators are once again at the precipice of closure.

It’s about time I bought everyone a pint, and what better way than to launch a summer hospitality hour across our ten boroughs. I’m looking forward to being at each one to personally thank landlords and staff and the punters who have kept our sector going.”

Callum Broom, co-owner and operator of the Adelphi Lads Club said “We are delighted to be the first venue for Sacha’s Manchester Hospitality Hour this Sunday and hope to see as many people down here as possible.  

“The past two years have been the most challenging of our industry, and his continued support and championing of the city-region has been invaluable. This is a great way to give back to those who have supported us all through this time.”

With the fine weather set to continue into the weekend the Adelphi Lads Club will be opened on Sunday from 2pm with music by Mas O Menos – a record label born to encourage a cultural and musical exchange between the UK and South-Africa – seeing the weekend out in style.

The locations and dates of the following happy hour events will then be announced by Lord on his Twitter account throughout July and August. 

The Hospitality Hour also comes as a direct response to the cost of living crisis and the problems set to face hospitality businesses over the coming months, with rising costs for punters and owners including food, drink and energy prices.
