Over half of Brits more excited than ever to host social gatherings again

The summer of long-awaited social events is well and truly underway, but rather than flock to the nearest pub or bar it seems Brits are happy to do the cooking, cocktail-making and cleaning themselves.

With 18 months of on-and-off lockdowns giving us a new appreciation for our homes, over half (59%) of people say they are now keen to host their own social gatherings. Over a third (36%) even claim these will be more frequent and elaborate occasions than ever before according to a new study from Caorunn Gin.

While the most common feeling about hosting post-pandemic is excitement (26%), the research found a fifth of people admit they are, understandably, a little out of practice and the thought of preparing for the event is all too overwhelming for 1 in 10.
