“Spectacular” National Licensing Week Event returns to Nottingham

Licensing Law Consultancy (LLC) has hosted its National Licensing Week Event 2022 in Nottingham, an event described as spectacular.

The National Licensing Week Event was conceived and first delivered in June 2019 by Walaiti Rathore and Licensing Law Consultancy.

The purpose was to support the Institute of Licensing’s annual National Licensing Week campaign, with a large scale national event to celebrate and raise awareness of licensing and the role it plays in everyday lives.

The chair of the Institute of Licensing, Dan Davies said: “I am delighted to support this event and I thank Walaiti Rathore for having the vision and energy to make this happen.”

This year’s event, an invitation only black tie celebration, was held at Alea and was attended by representatives of the Institute of Licensing, directors of UK Hospitality and the Confederation of British Industry, Nottingham BID, Pub Watch, Hospitality Association, leading operators with a local and national presence, representatives from international hospitality brands as well as leading businesses and professionals from all sectors.

Guests were treated to canapes, a three course meal, unlimited complimentary drinks all evening, spectacular entertainment acts and music, and received designer gifts on departure from fashion designer Paul Smith.

The evening was compered by Bikram Rathore, who gave an overview of the current landscape and positive outlook of the hospitality sector as per a recent research briefing issued by the House of Commons Library, before introducing guest speakers, Jim Cathcart, director of policy and regulation for UK Hospitality, and Amy English, chief inspector of Nottinghamshire Police for the city centre.

Both speakers emphasised the importance of partnership working to help overcome the current challenges faced in hospitality and licensing, to ensure vibrancy and safety in businesses as well as in our communities.

Walaiti Rathore said: “I am humbled, once again, by all the guests who attended as it would not have been possible without them, some of whom travelled long distances to Nottingham to support LLC and this event.

“Once again the idea was to involve representatives or members of organisations within or closely connected to licensing and also people from businesses and professionals with no such connections. This has proved to be the best way to reach out to the wider public.

“A special mention for Nottingham BID, PIB Insurance and Alea for their incredible support as well as Micheal Wisher Team Support, Chaiiwala, Equinox Audio Visual and Freedom Brewery. Also, a special thanks to Dan Carver of Fletcher Gate Industries.”
