The hospitality industry has to deal with many issues and challenges, but few are more important than the question of vulnerability; not least because – on top of welfare and vulnerability engagement being a moral imperative – you could find yourself facing a licensing review if you don’t make it a priority.
Let’s be honest, the one thing you have to get right when opening a business – in any sector – is everything.
The odd silent disco aside, sound – particularly music – is one of the two essentials for a good night out at licensed premises (the other being, er, a drink). Whether it’s a background playlist, a (quick retro reference here..) jukebox, a live session or a full- on, all-systems-blazing DJ set, the soundscape of a pub, bar or club is integral.
Our clients know all about our attention to detail and ‘after sales’ services. We don’t wave goodbye once we’ve secured a good outcome to a licensing issue – we’ll continue to advise, problem-solve and just keep a watchful eye on how a business is being run.

One issue which has come to the fore since we were all last regularly gathered together knocking back the mulled wines/craft beers/double vodkas is that of ‘spiking’ – the practice of surreptitiously introducing incapacitating substances to innocent parties’ drinks.
So here we are – our second Covid Christmas, and once more governmental regulations are forcing rapid rethinks as the hospitality sector seeks to bring some cheer to pandemic-weary customers (and recoup some of the alarming losses of the past 21 months or so).
Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat – and it might be the best option for this year’s Festive feasting, given the anticipated supply chain problems with turkeys. Whatever’s on offer in hotels, restaurants and pubs up and down the country, it seems demand will be high.
Squeezing the life out of our Live Events industry Let’s start by stating the obvious: This Covid-19 pandemic has left millions of people throughout Britain
