IT'S ENGLISH TOURISM WEEK and the first ever time that this annual week, which celebrates all that is fantastic about tourism in England, is being held virtually due to the coronacoaster. Who would ever have thought that Imperial Hotel would be closed for the Spring Bank Holiday and Whitsun week?
VisitBritain has released some facts and figures which show just why tourism is one of England’s largest and most valuable industries and we're going to share them on FaceBook every day this week.
And to help celebrate English Tourism Week 2020, Aileen has written a fun lockdown seaside quiz. of course, if you were attending one of our quiz nights, we'd be serving you with a delicious three course meal. Sadly we're still not allowed to open, so we're offering a delicious three course meal for two here at Imperial Hotel as a prize! We can't wait to welcome you back.
And whereas consulting Google is strictly banned at a quiz night at the hotel, for this quiz you're free to phone a friend, ask a member of your household, or to do a bit of internet research to track down your answers if you really must.
Simply email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org, to arrive at Imperial Hotel by no later than 1700 hours on 5 June 2020. The first correct entry out of the hat will win a delicious three course meal for two. Perfect for a treat when lockdown is over.
