Branch Diary

Barnsley CAMRA have quite a busy events calendar packed with socials, meetings etc. We have trips out which we mainly do with public transport but on the odd occasion we book a coach.

Our branch meetings are held mostly on the last Tuesday of each month, this can change when it clashes with a beer festival set-up or take-down and in December when we move it earlier into the month.

Our pub survey socials take place on the first Wednesday of the month except in August and December where we don't have them. These "Pub Crawls" take us into pubs and clubs in the chosen area and that is ones with and without real ale, we have found many a pub and club to be offering real ale that we didn't know about by these survey socials.

Beer festival meetings are added when called for and can take place any day of the week.

Other events are always listed in our calendar and may not have made it into print in our BAR Magazine.
