With age comes wisdom and Young’s knows a thing or two about running great pubs. In honour of their 184th year, join them for National Young’s Day on Thursday 17th September with birthday bashes at five selected pubs across the capital.
Local brews on tap, delicious Burger Shack burgers, expansive beer gardens and a jam-‐packed roster of fun entertainment are all on the cards at individual parties being held at The Windmill in Clapham, The Bull in Streatham, The Wood House in Dulwich, The Leather Bottle in Earlsfield and The Ship in Wandsworth. With each pub boasting a newly opened Burger Shack, guests can enjoy perfectly grilled patties in fluffy brioche buns with a side of curly fries, washed down with craft ales and sodas as well as beer tastings from Young’s Beer Ambassadors. The literal icing on the cake for Young’s Day will come from famed French pâtissier Eric Lanlard as guests help blow out the candles on an incredible birthday cake at The Ship.
The Ship, Wandsworth
With The Ship steering the celebrations, birthday-‐wishers can raise a craft brew to Young’s with Meantime Brewery tastings and grab a slice of Eric’s incredible birthday cake!
The Bull, Streatham
The Inkspot Brewery boys will be supplying St. Reatham lager at The Bull whilst a photobooth filled with props for snapping birthday party poses will also be in situ.
The Windmill, Clapham
Going barmy over burgers, The Windmill will have a giant piñata, a burger birthday cake and some of the best patties in south London fresh off the Burger Shack grill whilst live music plays courtesy of The Tiki Band and a visual spectacle from Fire Poi will entertain as the sun sets.
The Leather Bottle, Earlsfield
Fun for the entire family in Earlsfield with face painting, glitter tattoos, a small craft fair filled with local goods, as well as a spectacular fire show in the evening followed by an acoustic performance from the Duo Band.
Party mode will be engaged all day long with a Yummy Mummies coffee morning, an arts ‘n’ crafts afternoon for kids – promising extra special prizes for creative little ones who make Young’s a birthday card – followed by a sophisticated evening for the adults with soft jazz from The West House Band to soundtrack celebrations as the drinks flow well into the night.
Be sure to check out the pub’s website directly to find out more, whilst a limited number of VIP tickets will also be given away for each party, offering entry into exclusive areas, complimentary burgers and drinks, goody bags and a few surprises. Simply, follow each of the pubs on twitter and keep a close eye on their tweets to win!
