Sacha Lord launches happy hour scheme with free drinks for Mancs all summer

Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 23rd June 2022

Manchester’s night time economy adviser Sacha Lord has announced details of an almighty region-wide happy hour.

Saying it’s ‘about time he bought everyone a pint’, the Parklife boss will be partnering with pubs to put on free drinks.

He said that he’ll be coughing up for an hour’s free drinks right across Greater Manchester throughout summer.

The Manchester Hospitality Hour has been created to thank the support that people have shown hospitality since the pandemic began.

Sacha says he’ll be at every happy hour event to personally thank those who work in and support the industry.


The first spot will be the Adelphi Lads Club in Salford this weekend.

Sacha said: “This is all about getting together and thanking the people of Greater Manchester for their support over the past two and a half years.


“As a city region, we suffered tougher restrictions than any other during the pandemic, and now with the difficult economic environment, our operators are once again at the precipice of closure.

“It’s about time I bought everyone a pint, and what better way than to launch a summer hospitality hour across our ten boroughs.

“I’m looking forward to being at each one to personally thank landlords and staff and the punters who have kept our sector going.”

Callum Broom, co-owner and operator of the Adelphi Lads Club said: “We are delighted to be the first venue for Sacha’s Manchester Hospitality Hour this Sunday and hope to see as many people down here as possible.

“The past two years have been the most challenging of our industry, and his continued support and championing of the city-region has been invaluable, and this is a great way to give back those who have supported us all through this time.”
