    You are welcome. Everyone is welcome

    Writing a notice about an event, for example International Food Night at a club, I can end it "Everyone is welcome". Can I use "You are welcome" instead?

    International Food Night
    Join us at the Black Club on 23 March.
    Sample food from all over the world.
    Just turn up.
    You are welcome.

    I'd say 'Everyone is welcome' or 'You are all welcome', or simply 'All welcome'.

    Re: You are welcome. Everyone is welcome

    At a folk club, by tradition, the standard form is 'Come all ye'. But this is a specialized usage. It is a reference to the many folk songs that start 'Come all ye <adj> <noun>s and listen to me'.

    PS This is a synonym of the Am Eng 'Open mic.' - which is becoming quite common over here. In my day the idea of a microphone was anathema.

    My preference is for "All welcome".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
