Protect Our Pubs

Pub Nationalisation Project

During 2007, The Hare & Hounds, Kings Heath became the HQ for the Protect our Pubs campaign. This was premised on a single fictional conceit: that all English pubs were to be nationalised by 2010. 

POP temporarily converted The Hare and Hounds to show what a state run pub would be like. Pub nationalisation at The Hare & Hounds involved: 

- Changing the pubs name to the more politically correct The Care & Hounds
