For more than 70 years, Licensed & Catering News (LCN) has been regarded as the voice of Northern Ireland’s hospitality, leisure and tourism industries.
First published in 1940, LCN has established itself as a trusted and informative source of reliable industry-specific information for the trades in Northern Ireland.
Published 11 times a year, this award-winning magazine contains high-profile interviews with well-known figures from the sector as well as news, analysis, business advice and photo spreads.
In January every year, LCN publishes its much sought-after Yearbook edition, a unique record of opinions and analyses garnered from those who are at the very top of their professions across hospitality, leisure and tourism in the province.This edition also features an up-to-date directory of business, trade organisations and drinks industry codes. And due to the Yearbook’s reference value, it is often retained throughout the rest of the year by those who work in the trades.
Published in news based A3 format, LCN stands out from its competitors in both the physical sense and in terms of its rich and varied coverage.
Every year, the magazine hosts the only comprehensive gala awards event for the hospitality, leisure and tourism sectors in Northern Ireland. Attended by hundreds of high profile guests from across the trades, the evening is designed to recognise professionalism and achievement at the highest level in the trades.
