Nation’s Toast

Friday 8th May 2020 (Bank Holiday)

3pm – The Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of World War 2

To coincide with the playing of Battle’s O’er, and in association with the British Beer and Pub Association and its members, thousands of pubs throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man will be asking their customers to raise a glass at 3pm and take part in The Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of World War 2, a copy of which can be downloaded here. It will be a chance for the customers of more than 20,000 UK pubs to remember the sacrifice of those who died or were wounded.

We would also like to encourage others such as local authorities, town and parish councils, along with individuals and community groups etc, to stop what they are doing at 3pm on 8th May and raise a glass of refreshment of their choice and take part in the Nations Toast too.
