SATURDAY 22ND APRIL 2017 - SOCIAL - TIFFIELD - LocAle
Continuing with “Community Pubs month”, we visit the George, Tiffield, where Russell and Jane show how to run a community focused village pub. With a good choice of ales, including supporting the local Great Oakley Brewery, there are always a number of events in the pipeline. In addition there is always the skittle table which is always popular. Meet at 19.00.
WEDNESDAY 26TH APRIL 2017 - SOCIAL - NORTHAMPTON - LocAle
Continuing with “Community Pubs month”, we visit the Road to Morocco, hidden in a modern housing estate to the east. Steve does his utmost to obtain unusual beers from his allowed portfolio, and the Theakston’s Old Peculier is always popular. Very much sport orientated, many towns have lost pubs like this. Meet at 19.00.
SATURDAY 29TH APRIL 2017 - PUB BEER FESTIVAL - BROUGHTON - LocAle
Our final Community Pub of the month is the Red Lion, Broughton, where a variety of events are organised for the local community, including race meetings, fancy dress, and charity events. This twice winning Rural Pub of the Year returns with the first of its two beer festivals following last year’s cancellations due to Pippa’s health. Back to normal now though with a good selection of around 20 ales, plus ciders. Musical entertainment is provided too. Meet from 19.00.
MONDAY 8TH MAY 2017 - BRANCH OPEN MEETING AND PUB OF THE SEASON - NORTHAMPTON - LocAle
We make our first presentation of the year to Ollie Hepworth at the Black Prince, which was voted Spring Town Pub of The Season. Meet at 20.00 and the presentation will be made during the break.
TUESDAY 23RD MAY 2017 - SOCIAL BREAKFAST CLUB - NORTHAMPTON - LocAle
Six weekly breakfast club followed by a few pints of ale and plenty of good conversation over a number of topics. Anyone is welcome to join them, with the social starting at 10.00. The current venue is the Cordwainer, Northampton, where of course you can use your Spoon’s vouchers too.
FRIDAY 14TH - SUNDAY 16TH JULY 2017 - JOURNEY TO THE END OF THE WOLD LONG WEEKEND TRIP - LocAle
This year sees the 21st Weekend Trip and Twentieth Anniversary, so we are pushing the bus out further with a two night stopover in East Yorkshire, although visiting pubs in North and South Yorkshire too. The long weekend includes eleven taps and around 12 National and Regional Inventory pubs. There is also a seaside visit, so bring your bucket and spade! I have again planned longer stops with a choice of more than one pub when possible. Booking form is available to download. Please book by 31st January.
