We are delighted to announce that Sheffield has beaten off competition from a number of real ale cities to be chosen as the location of CAMRA’s national Members’ Weekend and AGM for 2021. As if that wasn’t enough of an honour, 2021 is a very significant year as it also marks the 50th anniversary of CAMRA’s creation.
Having been chosen we now need to begin making preparations and putting together an organising committee. As it is a national event, we will also have help from volunteers from other branches but the main things we will need to put together include a members’ bar and catering; trips to local breweries and pubs; a handbook including a programme and local tourist information; and rooms and equipment for meetings and workshops. There will be planning meetings arranged in due course, so anybody interested in helping out should keep an eye on our branch diary.
Sheffield City Hall has been booked for the Members’ Weekend and we will be having a look around the venue on Tuesday 21 May at 2pm. All interested in taking part are welcome to attend.
