Join to enjoy free/discounted entry to over 180 CAMRA festivals *
Bath & Borders branch of CAMRA will be hosting our annual Beer & Cider Festival in 2024 on February 16th (16:00 – 23:00) and 17th (11:00 – 19:00). Entry to each session costs £10 and includes £3-worth of beer/cider tokens, a printed programme, and a festival glass (a substantial number of 2024 commemorative glasses will be available at both sessions on a first come first served basis , but depending on 2024 attendance, some visitors may be offered glassware from earlier festivals instead).
Card carrying CAMRA members will receive an additional £2 of beer tokens at the event.
Expect some 30 real ales and up to 8 real ciders, including many local producers and others from further afield. As always, these come carefully selected to cater for a range of tastes, enabling festival goers to enjoy plenty of your favourite styles with the opportunity to try something new. Both Friday and Saturday sessions for the Feb 2023 event sold out a few weeks beforehand and tickets were not available on the door so advance purchase is strongly recommended.
The festival will once again be held at Widcombe Social Club, a stone’s throw from Bath Spa train station. Hot food and non-alcoholic refreshments will be available during both sessions.
The Bath and Borders branch of CAMRA covers an area stretching from just North of Bath to Westbury in the East, just South of Wells in the West and to Wincanton in the South. There are over 300 pubs, bars and clubs open in our branch area. The best way to find a pub in the area you are in, or are planning to visit, is via the national CAMRA pub guide https://whatpub.com/
Alongside the Bath Beer Festival the branch runs events on a more-or-less weekly basis. These include socials and meetings and occasional brewery visits, minibus trips to outlying pubs or joint events with neighbouring branches. If you’re a CAMRA member in the area, or even just somebody interested in beer, please feel free to come to any of our events.
