What is Independent Hospitality Week

There are tens of thousands of independent hospitality business who work hard in a challenging economy to open their doors, hatches and hearts to customers every day and who bring their brand of hospitality to events, festivals and highstreets across the country.

Here at NCASS, we champion independents and want to bring the country together to celebrate and support them, so we have launched Independent Hospitality Week (IHW) which will take place from the 6th- 12th May 2024.

This is a week for everyone to back independents, share food and drink experiences and back the businesses that make our cities, towns and villages what they are. We’re asking businesses to join IHW and for their customers to shout about how much their local bars, cafes, restaurants pubs, street food traders, event & festival traders mean to them. Collectively we want to make as much noise as possible about how important these wonderful food and drinks businesses are.

Let’s raise the profile of independents and make IHW something to talk about.
