Norwich and Norfolk Branch of CAMRA’s 40th Anniversary Party

The Norwich & Norfolk Branch of Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) is 40 years old this year and to celebrate the branch are holding a party.

The 40th Anniversary party will take place in Duke Henry’s Room at the Narthex Centre, St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Cathedral on Saturday 28th November from 7.30pm until midnight.  It is hoped that local branch members, committee members past and present, publicans and brewers, as well as other familiar faces will come together to have a beer and banter about the good, the bad and very different times of real ale over the last 40 years in the Norwich and Norfolk branch area.

CAMRA is a national consumer organisation with over 170,000 members with the Norwich & Norfolk Branch, which covers roughly two thirds of the county of Norfolk and centred on the city of Norwich, currently having over 3,000 members CAMRA is a volunteer-led organisation and all local events, including Norwich Beer Festival, are organised by volunteers in their own time.  Our main concern is with the promotion of good-quality cask conditioned beers (commonly referred to as “real ale”) allied to traditional British breweries and pubs.

Tickets for the party are only £10 each including one free pint and a free buffet catered by The Narthex.  Commemorative pint glasses can also be purchased for £3.  Any profits from the evening (after costs) will be donated to the current branch charity, St Edmunds Society, who are based in Oak Street, Norwich.

At least fifteen local ales will be on the bar, along with some ciders.  There might even be some tunes from the 70s played to get everyone feeling nostalgic!

Tickets are available online from here.
