It's official, Social Sunday is back for 2020

It’s official, Social Sunday 2020 in association with Nisbets takes place on Sunday 5th July.
Social Sunday 2019 was a record breaker. Not only did your amazing efforts raise over £80,000 for hospitality people in need, we also doubled the amount of people participating – with over 100 businesses raising money and awareness of the work we do, and showing the world how our amazing industry pulls together to help its own.

From a ‘Social Sunday Session Ale’ brewed in our honour in Cornwall, to Michelin starred chefs cooking up a storm at Whatley Manor, the godfather of classic French cuisine Pierre Koffmann appearing at Jason Atherton’s Pollen Street Social in London, or even a record breaking job swap fundraiser at The Fazenda Group in the North West – operators across the UK went the extra mile to raise money, motivate their teams and delight guests – all for Social Sunday.

We're going to take things up a gear in 2020 and truly make not just Sunday on the 5th of July, but the whole of July, into a celebration of UK hospitality showcasing how we care for each other when times are hard. What’s great about Social Sunday is it’s your chance to showcase your business in a way that works for you. From adding a small amount to diners’ bills, to adding a special drink, dish or menu, or even hosting a special event. Whatever you decide to do for Social Sunday you’ll be playing your part in helping the most vulnerable in our industry and flying the flag for UK hospitality.

We’re delighted to be working with our friends Nisbets in 2020 who will help us recruit more operators than ever before, they’ll be joined by partners Act Clean, Catalyst and Hospitality Media – all helping us reach new heights.

Our dedicated website www.socialsunday.org.uk is primed and ready to showcase your business to the industry and the wider foodie community. Tell us what you’re planning now to secure your listing and motivate others to take part.

We can’t wait for you to join us in our mission to make Social Sunday a celebration of our fine industry and the wonderful people within it.
