About Us
Welcome to our website.
The Peterborough & District Branch of CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale) started in 1975, when a group of real ale enthusiasts met at the Bull in Market Deeping.
Our branch covers three counties and two regions, from Weldon, N'hants in the west, to the Tydd villages in the east, Bourne to the north and Titchmarsh marks our southern boundary.

In a few weeks time it'll be our AGM.
Before the meeting, all amendments or additions to our operational policies and nominations for committee positions must be with the secretary (By 1st Dec, please). This is the opportunity for all members to get involved with their local CAMRA branch. We have a couple of committee members retiring this year and so we need replacements. If you're interested in joining the team as a new Chair, Pubs Officer, Secretary, LocAle Officer or any role, please contact the secretary at

CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, is an independent, voluntary, consumer organisation which campaigns for real ale, real pubs and consumer rights.
Membership is open to all individuals although corporate entities such as breweries and pubs are not members.
CAMRA is governed by a voluntary unpaid national executive, elected by the membership. We have a branch structure which means that all members can join a local CAMRA branch and campaign and socialise locally. There are around 200 branches covering the UK and many of the branches run local beer festivals, publish local newsletters and run social events to pubs and breweries.
CAMRA is financed through membership subscriptions, sales of products such as books and sweatshirts, and from the proceeds of beer festivals.
