Created by Chris Smith, the director of ‘Fyre’ and ‘The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann’, this seemingly feature length film cuts short after 6 minutes to reveal that The Horn’s Lodge - a vibrant pub, filled with characters and stories - closed its doors for good in 2019. The heart-breaking end was designed to make viewers feel the loss experienced by communities across the country when their pubs close.

The film was also supported by an educational social and print campaign that showed people exactly why pubs were closing, and what this meant for local communities.
