The months of March and April have always been renowned to provide a succession of money-spinning opportunities for pubs up and down the country. This year has been no different with the RBS Six Nations Tournament, Cheltenham Festival, St Patrick’s Day and Easter all falling within 5 weeks of one another.
Also amongst this year’s big seasonal events is Mother’s Day! If it hasn’t already been marked off on the planner, Mother’s Day falls slap bang in the middle of St Patrick’s Day and the Easter Bank Holiday on the last Sunday in March. Claimed to be ‘bigger than Christmas’ for food-led pubs; Mother’s Day is another great opportunity to capitalise on throughout the Spring period.
With just three weeks to go until Sunday 26th March, there is still plenty of time to get people interested and it’s never too late to hang a banner to let customers know your venue is engaging in Mother’s Day activities. Although many places take bookings well in advance, there will always be those last-minute customers that need somewhere to eat this Mother’s Day.
Food & Drink
You can’t go wrong with a roast dinner on Mother’s Day, however it can be nice to have a variety of dishes as Mother’s might want something extra-special on their special day! Many venues offer mum’s a celebratory drink on the house so this could be an idea to give out Prosecco to all the mum’s eating at your venue!
Whatever the offer is, make sure all those mums, step-mums and grandmothers feel special at your venue this coming Mother’s Day!
