Welcome to the Peterborough branch website Link to Peterborough Beer Festival
Welcome to our new 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 Sawtry marks our southern boundary.

- The Ostrich will rise again
Tuesday 30 July 2019
Great news regarding the Ostrich is that for those who may have noticed it being advertised for sale, it has now been removed from the market, and will remain in the possession of one of its long term owners, securing its future as a free of tie pub. The Ostrich will be open up to and throughout the Beer Festival, before temporarily closing the doors for a few days on the bank holiday Monday 26th August, whilst a refurbishment is carried out. The pub will reopen lunchtime on Friday 30th August with a new landlord and landlady. The Ostrich will continue with real ale very much its focus, including the existing varied range of 5 real ales, plus craft beers, together with live music every weekend.

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; we currently have over 190,000 individual 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.
