Holy Trinity Beer & Cider Festival - This was a fantastic success with records broken all round. Our thanks go to all those who gave up their valuable time to volunteer and make this work. We hope to have the full story and photos published on the website when we've had time to recover from the event!
"Hi, Just a quick note to say thank you all for a magnificent Beer / Cider festival at Hull Holy Trinity. My wife & I visited Thursday afternoon, a brilliant atmosphere. Hope it will return at the same venue next year. Thank you"

What can you do to help?
This week CAMRA has launched the Fair Deal For Your Local Campaign - a major campaign which aims to persuade the Government to finally implement far-reaching reforms to the tied pubco model. We are urging all member to get involved and we only have until 14th June to respond to the survey. Click here for more information and to take part in the survey.
Why Join CAMRA?
- Help Save Our Pubs!
- Social Events
Perhaps most importantly, joining CAMRA will help strengthen the cause to save the endangered species that is the great British pub. Ever increasing taxation, unfair and restrictive policies and apathy from the public is contributing to the gradual disappearance of your local pubs! Join us now and help stop the decline of our national heritage.
If you have ever used a copy of the Good Beer Guide you'll know what a useful resource this is, but did you know that as a member you can actually nominate and vote for the pubs which go into here? So if you've ever wondered why your favourite isn't listed, join up and you can maybe change that!
Each month you will receive a copy of the 'What's Brewing' CAMRA newspaper, and a quarterly issue of 'Beer' magazine keeping you up to date with informative articles and campaign news. The best selling Good Beer Guide is available at a discounted rate to all members.
Your local branch will have regular social events, from open meetings where you can get involved in local issues, to organising fun pub crawls and beer 'survey trips'. These trips often give you the opportunity to visit some great pubs you would not normally get to on your own; and you don't have to worry about driving there!
JD Wetherspoon has kindly agreed to supply all new and renewing members £20 worth of beer vouchers for their chain of pubs as part of your CAMRA membership package! Plus you may find many discounts on food and real ale for members in your local pubs. You will also receive free or discounted entry to CAMRA beer festivals.
