‘Here’s to the hosts’ with Tesco’s Christmas Campaign December 22, 2016


Tesco’s Christmas ad campaign ‘Here’s to the Hosts’ continues to run across television screens in the run-up to Christmas this Sunday.

Directed by award-winning documentary-director Ken Wardrop, each advert sees real people from across the country reading out a letter they’ve written to the person who hosts them for Christmas dinner, thanking them for their hospitality.

Featuring 35 advertisements in total, you can check out the campaigns brilliant launch video below, cut by our very own Jake Walshe:
