Final orders are being called on bookings for South Cambridgeshire District Council’s event which will cover the help the council can give through reductions in business rates, news about free broadband connection vouchers for pub businesses and a masterclass on how to use social media to market pubs.
The June 10 event will take place at the Camra award-winning pub The Plough in High Street.
Speakers include Bernard Lee from runapub.com and workshops with Terry Stork from Pub is the Hub and Nicole Hamilton from the Plunkett Foundation.
