Forest at the Labour party conference

Wed 28th September, 2011

Two hundred people attended Forest's Save Our Pubs & Clubs event at the Cavern Club in Liverpool.

Five Live Breakfast presenter Nicky Campbell was there too, interviewing guests for the morning programme.

Speakers included former landlord Nick Hogan and John Tobin, vice president of the Clubs & Institute Union. Hogan and Tobin both called for an amendment to the smoking ban which they said had devastated Britain's pubs and clubs.

Highlight of the evening was the Beatles tribute band Made In Liverpool. Songs included 'A Hard Day's Night', 'I Feel Fine', 'Girl', 'Eight Days A Week', 'Twist and Shout' and many more.

The event attracted several MPs including Labour leader Ed Miliband's Parliamentary Private Secretary who told organisers, "That was the best event at the conference".
