The British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) is staging a pub photography exhibition in an effort to promote the British pub.

Due to be held next week, the ‘Pub Life’ photo competition will feature images from pubs around the country that best capture the “iconic cultural and social institution that is the Great British pub,” said the group.

“From lazy Sunday afternoons whiled away with a hearty roast to a lively screening of ‘the beautiful game’ with mates and a pint in the hand – the Pub Life exhibition is a snapshot of our affection for the British Pub,” said BBPA.

The exhibition will kick off on Tuesday 17 may at The Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane.
