More than three-quarters of Brits intend to visit hospitality venues this Bank Holiday weekend, spending an average of £138.55 per head, new research has found. Finance broker Charles & Dean surveyed 2,000 UK consumers and found that in spite of the cost-of-living crisis, 77% of Brits aged 16 or over will head to hospitality venues over the long weekend. Consumers estimate they will spend, on average, £138.55 each at venue, with demand highest among those aged 16-24 (£171.07 per hea). Average estimated spend varies by region, with London (£200.83), the north east (£165.02) and Northern Ireland (£159.01) leading the way. Tom Perkins, director and co-founder at Charles & Dean, said: “While we’re seeing a general trend towards financial cutbacks amid the cost-of-living crisis, it seems people are keen to take full advantage of the late summer bank holiday. The onus is on hospitality venues to do all they can to capture this demand and think about what they can put in place to make their bank holiday offering as appealing as possible.”
