Budding publicans who want run their own pub business have the opportunity to make it happen when one of the UK’s leading pub chains visits Preston next week.

Admiral Taverns, which owns around 1,100 pubs across the UK, many of them across Lancashire, come to the city on Wednesday, from noon to 6pm, as part of a recruitment drive. The group hopes to attract ambitious people from the area who want to run their own pubs.

The recruitment event at the Fox and Grapes pub on Ribbleton Lane is set to provide a welcome boost for local employment as Admiral has several pub opportunities in the region. Anyone is welcome to come along on the day and find out more about being an Admiral licensee.

Previous experience of the pub trade isn’t necessary as the group has special training programmes.

The Fox and Grapes and the Tanners Arms are among Preston pubs which are looking for new people to run them.
