Hull & East Yorkshire

Campaign for Real Ale

Hull & East Yorkshire Branch


This is the website of Hull & East Yorkshire branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) an organisation of volunteers fighting for consumer rights within the pub-going sector. Our aims are to protect those consumer rights, to encourage the use of well run community pubs, and to promote the responsible enjoyment of quality real ale.

Locally we now have over 1170 members but we are always on the lookout for more people to help the campaign...... and you could have a lot of fun whilst you're doing it! So if you enjoy real ale, good pubs and good company then why not join up?
Visit the Main CAMRA Website where you can see the benefits for yourself.

Branch Update

In recent weeks the various Governments and Assemblies of the UK have announced how their roadmaps will be progressing. How does this affect CAMRA Branches? No branch meetings or arranged gatherings such as socials can take place before complete government lifting of restrictions which in England, affecting most branches, we know will not happen any earlier than 21 June.

Even when gatherings are allowed there are often restrictions of numbers of people who can attend, and most CAMRA meetings are unrestricted in terms of people who can attend. No events can take place, and no financial commitment may be made to any event booking.

Latest News

In response to the reports that easing of restrictions in England will be delayed beyond June 21, please find the attached comment from CAMRA National Chairman Nik Antona.

May is Cider Month

To raise awareness of cider and perry production, CAMRA celebrates Cider Month twice a year. These are in October and May, during which time our local branches organise cider and perry events across the country. Unlike real ale production, which can happen at any time of the year, real cider and perry can only be made when the fruit is ripe and is tied to a natural cycle of the apple and pear trees found in orchards around the country. May was chosen because it is when the orchards bloom and begin producing fruit which will then be harvested. It is also when cider and perry production in the previous year reaches maturity and can start being enjoyed.
