When does the local branch meet?
During the current Coronavirus crisis and following official advice, physical meetings and socials are suspended until further notice, however we have been holding frequent online socials and occasional meetings which members are welcome to attend

Under normal circumstances, we meet monthly for an open branch meeting where we discuss current matters and decide such things as which pubs to nominate for the Good Beer Guide, which to award a Pub of the Season and/or Pub of the Year certificate to, all done democratically and as fairly as we can.
Other topics include beer festivals, pub preservation and local pub news, which is the main source of content for the news pages of our quarterly branch magazine, Real Ale Talk.

All 8pm unless otherwise stated:-

  • Branch meeting and AGM, details TBA Tuesday 21 September 2021 19:30 Hanging Heaton Cricket Club

    A brief monthly meeting covering essential points followed at 8pm by the branch AGM. Venue and date to be confirmed.
