We can’t actually be a pub, we can only be ‘more than’ a pub: The Bevy in lockdown

‘We can’t actually be a pub, we can only be ‘more than’ a pub: The Bevy in lockdown’ tells the story the experiences of members of the team at The Bevy, a community pub in Moulsecoomb and Bevendean in Brighton, as they dealt with the emotional and practical challenges during eight weeks of the Covid-19 lockdown between April and June 2020, and as their thoughts turned towards reopening. The research takes an ethnographic approach, incorporating conversations, written posts and images to tell the story.

The research was instigated by The Bevy team as a way to capture learning from the experience. The ethnographic research was carried out by Self/Other and the report was written up by Sophie Reid, a Research Associate of Power to Change.
