Do you fancy bagging yourself a free pint in Manchester today? If so, all you need to do is be able to belt out a Christmas classic.

Pub chain Greene King is giving customers the chance to claim a free pint of Ice Breaker by singing their own version of ‘Jingle Bells’ to whoever is pulling your pint.

The 408 Greene King sites around the UK will be taking part in the initiative, which includes all sites in and around Manchester, for the duration of today.

Don’t fancy singing alone? Not to worry, Greene King has said a group effort will be rewarded with a pint each.

Marketing director at Greene King Local Pubs, Andrew Gallagher, said: “Greene King Locals are more than just bricks and mortar – they’re a home away from home that bring people together, so we couldn’t think of a better way to kick off this year’s festivities than a good old Christmas carol and a pint.”
