It is with great regret that we have had to cancel this years Pubwatch Awards.
It has become clear that due to the continuing pandemic that our venue for the awards dinner on 21 October could not be guaranteed. Currently all House of Lords events for September 2020 have been cancelled with no firm guarantee that the events in October would not be pulled at the last minute.
We are obviously disappointed to cancel such a key NPW event, which does so much to promote good practice. However we are really pleased to announce that JD Wetherspoon have agreed to sponsor the 2021 awards which hopefully will take place in House of Lords or a similarly prestigious venue.
We will be contacting those schemes which have already made application for the 2020 awards and we apologise for any inconvenience caused by this decision.
