Win a copy of the 2017 Good Beer Guide by voting in our Pubs and Club of the Year competition

Hello Members,

It will soon be time for CAMRA members in Durham Branch to choose which of the pubs and clubs in our branch area should hold the titles Pubs and Club for the Year for 2017. These will then go forward for consideration as CAMRA North East Regional Pubs and Club of the Year. There are five categories – Town Pub of the Year, Country Pub of the Year, Club of the Year, Town Cider Pub of the Year and Country Cider Pub of the Year.

Old publications uploaded

The webmaster has been having a tidy-out at home and found a CD that someone had given him at some point. The CD contains scanned copies of a number of old Durham Drinkers dating back between August 1984 and Christmas 1994. These have now been uploaded to the Durham Drinker section of the website. The issue to look out for are 33, 38, 39, 41, 45, 48, 52, 53, 54, 56, 58, 59, 60, 66, 68 and 69. If you have any other old Durham Drinkers that can help us fill the gaps in the archive, please get in touch.

ACV Workshop

Feel that your local pub is a vital asset to your local community and afraid of what would happen if it were to close? Then you may be interested in an upcoming CAMRA workshop on how to nominate your local as an "Asset of Community Value" (ACV).

2016 Bishop Auckland Food Festival

The Bishop Auckland Food Festival takes place on April 23rd and 24th, with various events, demonstrations, shows, and stalls featuring “the very best food and drink the North East has to offer”.

One of the more interesting features, from a beer­lovers aspect, is the Tipple Tent. No prizes for what goes on there! Two of our Durham CAMRA area breweries will be there to offer the chance to talk to the brewers themselves, and samples their wares.

AGM 2016

The Branch gives notice that the 2016 Branch AGM will take place on Tuesday 12th April at The Ship in Middlestone starting at 19:30.

A bus is being provided. If you are interested in using this, please email social@camradurham.org.uk for information. It would also be appreciated if you could email us if you plan on making your own way there so we know what size buffet is needed.
