‘The Return of the Suburbs’: leisure and hospitality in a post-lockdown world

30th July 2020 - Published by

On July 29th, Kuits hosted this ‘Return of the Suburbs’ leisure webinar, where head of leisure for Kuits Felicity Tulloch provided insights into the opportunities emerging for brands already situated in suburban areas and district centres, and city centre brands looking to invest in their ‘out-of-city’ presence.

Licensing associate Rebecca Ingram gives an important update on the Business and Planning Act which received Royal Assent on 22nd July and looks at the unprecedented powers Local Authorities have been given as part of the Health Protections Regulations 2020.

Felicity was also joined by Lyndon Higginson, owner of Junkyard Golf, Crazy Pedros, The Liars Club, Cane & Grain, Science & Industry, Bunny Jackson’s and The Bay Horse Tavern, who discussed why he decided the suburbs would make a great home for his new brand, Southside Tequila Joint.

In the webinar, Felicity provides expert advice on how brands can approach the licensing and regulatory challenges that inevitably come with opening or expanding venues in populated residential areas and how there is evidence to suggest local authorities may be taking a more relaxed approach with early adopters in order to support the industry and re-activate the economy of the area.
