PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE
To coincide with Bristol and District’s ‘Mild Ale Promotion’ Campaign, the next South West Regional Meeting, hosted by Bristol and District Branch, will be on Saturday 23rd November at the Famous Royal Navy Volunteer in King Street, Bristol BS1, starting at 12.30.
The meeting will be followed by tour of appropriate pubs in Bristol.
It’s about a 20 minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads station to the venue, so we’d recommend getting the 10:52 train (arrives 11:38). A day return costs £10.00.
This year’s TWAF, the 25th, starts on Thursday 6th February (for card carrying CAMRA members), continuing on the 7th and 8th for general admission. A season ticket will be available for just £10, with 80 real ales, as well as cider and perry to choose from.
