Rutland Camra beer festival set for return at Rutland Museum
Letter of the week
I’m sure that your readers need some good news! Well, here’s some. Rutland’s CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) branch is emerging from a Covid-19 spell of reduced activity and is now up and fully functioning again. As well as meeting regularly, it is now engaged in organising its ninth beer festival to be held, as usual, in the Rutland Museum on Catmos Street, outside in the courtyard, after a covid pause of two years.
The festival will run from Thursday, June 23, to Sunday, June 26, from 11am till 8pm. The usual rural theme of hay bales and old farming equipment will form the perfect background to the service of a large range of real ales and ciders. This year we will be adding a gin and a wine bar. Food and soft drinks will also be available, and families are very welcome.
Various types of music (be prepared to be surprised!) will happen at various times and a good time will be had by all. Our previous festival feedback shows a 90 per cent satisfaction rate from both our visitors to the county and our much-loved locals.
CAMRA supports the availability of real ales and ciders, and, of course, the sustainability of our lovely pubs and clubs to serve these real products. So put the dates in your diary, and come along for a good time, and support the aims of CAMRA at the same time.
You can gain more festival details as they emerge from their website www.rutlandcamra.org.uk
If you would like to join this lively local branch of CAMRA, then please contact their membership secretary on firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see you in June!
