Gabi said: "I think the pub is still very successful because it is run by Luton people for Luton people.

"On Friday we have the deputy Town Mayor coming for tea and then we have a night of Garage Classics with MC DT.

"On Saturday, we will be giving away 125 drinks and we will have music from the past 40 years from 2pm, in the evening we have Legends of Tap, Jonny G, Paks and Syss returning to the pub.

"There will be a Motown singer on Sunday, throughout the weekend there really is something for everyone.

"It feels amazing to be part of this celebration and I feel very proud, I am Luton born and bred.

"The pub is one of the last few in the town that has not been taken over by a larger chain which I think is great, it is still run by Luton people, it is not my pub, it is the people of Luton's pub.

"The Brewery Tap would like to say a Massive Thank you for all the support we get ! Keeping it a real Luton Pub!"
