The Thinking Drinkers Pub Crawl @ Cheltenham Town Hall
Feb 7 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Bound & Gagged Comedy are taking “The Thinking Drinkers” up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and on tour in Autumn.

Their brand new show ˜Pub Crawl” is a hilarious, intoxicating bar-hop through history. Enjoy five freedrinks as the award-winning experts take you from the symposiums of  Ancient Greece to the classic British boozer via Wild West saloons, Victorian gin palaces and the secret Speakeasy.  You’ll learn a lot,  you’ll laugh a lot and, don’t forget, you get five free drinks.

*Their message is”Drink Less, Drink Better” encouraging people to discover craft ales and independent spirits.*

They will be appearing at  Cheltenham Town Hall on 7th February.  A link to tickets (and more information about the show) is here:

Bristol beer Festival 2019 @ Brunel's Old Station
Mar 21 – Mar 23 all-day
The twenty second annual CAMRA Bristol Beer Festival will run from Thursday 21st to Saturday 23rd March 2019 at Brunel’s Old Station, Temple Meads, Bristol. There will be a carefully chosen selection of around 140 different real ales on sale over the course of the festival as well as a good range of cider and perry. There will also be a variety of food available at all sessions.
A couple of important points:
 
1)      New for 2019 we have added a Thursday lunchtime session running from 12 noon until 4:30pm and we think this may be popular with members of other branches that fancy a day trip to Bristol.
2)      Tickets go on sale to CAMRA members on Thursday 31 January and then on general sale the next day Friday 1 February 2019. Please note that to buy tickets during the CAMRA member ticket sales on Thursday 31 January you need to have joined CAMRA by 23 January 2019 and either be a member of the Bristol & District branch (including Weston-super-Mare) or have signed up to the registration list for members of other branches available at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Ticket2019
 
The approach to member ticket sales is the same as for 2018 i.e. that if you aren’t included on the CAMRA Bristol & District branch member list then you need to register so we can manually add you. Some members from “local” branches were confused by this last year and assumed they would not need to register, which caused some problems on the day. Tickets go on general sale to everyone from Friday 1st February. Tickets for all sessions cost £11.50 including £5 worth of beer festival tokens, which customers will receive on entry enabling them to go straight to the bar. Also included are a festival programme and commemorative glass.
