Deltic reports record Halloween trading

The Deltic Group, the UK’s largest operator of premium late night bars and clubs, has just announced strong trading from the commencement of the majority of Freshers weeks on 17 September 2017 to Halloween on 31 October 2017.

Total sales for the period were up by 9.1% to £16.4m on a like-for-like basis, with total admissions up by 6.4% to 1.3m people on a like-for-like basis.

Early week sales have risen by 12.4% and Friday and Saturday sales saw a 7.5% uplift on a total company year-on-year basis.

Deltic reported a record Halloween Saturday, with admissions up by 2.3% to 90,598 on already impressive performance last year.

Peter Marks, Chief Executive of The Deltic Group said, “This strong trading period, including a record Halloween weekend and very strong Halloween Tuesday, follows a period of significant investment for the Group, including an extensive refurbishment programme and the introduction of further music-led entertainment.

“I believe that our recent performance reflects the Group’s quality brands, well invested estate, and dedication to customer service, coupled with the substantial appetite amongst consumers for great nights out. We are seeing sales growth across all our regions, and we look forward to building on this going forward.”
