Union JACK looks for Britain’s Best Beer Garden

Union JACK has launched a competition to find Britain’s Best Beer Garden.

The national DAB station is inviting listeners to nominate their top choice from anywhere in the country.

The winning pub will become the host venue for a day of live broadcasts including its Full English Breakfast Show; and a live pub quiz hosted by Mark “The Beast” Labbett, who will also be a part of the live broadcast.

Listeners will also have the chance to win themselves a year’s worth of drinks. 

Ahead of the competition launch, Union JACK radio asked listeners to share their thoughts on what constitutes a good beer garden, with these ideas used to develop the criteria on which entries will be judged. Have a listen to an example below.

Giles Gear, Programme Manager of Union JACK radio, said: “Getting slowly burnt in your local beer garden is one of the nation’s greatest summer traditions.

“Now that we’re finally allowed back in, we want to encourage our listeners to get out there and support the UK’s pubs, nominating their local as Britain’s best beer garden. Plus – who wouldn’t want a year’s worth of having their drinks on us?”
