Hooky Pub hosting election debate sees trade increase

Hooky Pub The Cap 'N' Gown in Worcester saw trade increase by 3,000% on the first night of an election debate hosted by the pub.

The election debates were the idea of Pub Landlord Ted Marshall who is committed to bringing policitians to the people. Over the next 10 weeks, the local MP and four parliamentary candidates will be taking part in a hustings style debate at the pub, covering issues ranging from education to immigration.

For the first debate on Europe the pub was completely packed on a Monday night and Ted is keen to continue that success - even considering installing a web cam for the debates as reported in the Morning Advertiser.  Read the full story in The Morning Advertiser
