East Lancs CAMRA is the local organisation of the Campaign for Real Ale. The branch was set up in 1974 to pursue CAMRA’s objectives at local level. This involves the promotion of real ale, real cider & perry and publicising where it may be enjoyed. We are also interested in preserving the character of the traditional British pub with all of its cultural, historical and architectural aspects.
The Campaign for Real Ale is a voluntary organisation consisting of over 192,000 ordinary people, run by an unpaid, elected national executive and backed by a small core of professional executives. It speaks for people everywhere by fighting to save pubs and breweries from closure, attempting to improve quality and choice, and trying to ensure pub standards are raised.
As a member you can have your say about the issues which affect you. You can stand for election to office, attend the annual conference to speak and vote, and help organise local campaigns. You can help select pubs for the Good Beer Guide, help out at beer festivals and, above all, enjoy many excellent regular social activities.
The branch covers quite a large region encompassing all of the local authority areas of Blackburn with Darwen, Burnley, Hyndburn, Pendle, the Ribble Valley and Rossendale, although there is a degree of overlap on the western side of the Blackburn and Ribble Valley areas with the Central Lancs CAMRA branch.
