Streetmap uk, whatpub.com or Beer
in the Evening website....
A combination of local decisions and an official CAMRA directive has led to lots of cancellations. Very sad for our pubs and suppliers, but has to be done. Our Branch Beer Festival in Lewes has had to be postponed until 2021.
The Socials ... cancelled as pubs are closed.
Thursday 30th April – 8pm: BRANCH MEETING at The Swan Inn, Falmer. Decision to CANCEL not yet made.
Sat 23: Adur Valley Beer Walk, noon to 6pm
Has not been cancelled, yet, as it is largely an outdoor event and take-away beer could be sold from the breweries. Footpaths and countryside still open; keep your distance.
Situation reviewed 1st May to see what official advice is.
Sun 24: Ale Trail Launch Under the circumstances, we've regretfully decided to postpone the start of this year's Ale Trail. As yet we have no idea when we'll be able to get it up and running, but we'll let you know as soon as we do.
Fri 19 & Sat 20: South Downs Beer & Cider Festival, Lewes CANCELLED.

Please be aware that due to this programme being planned months in advance that bus time tables could be changed or, worse still, cut completely by the time any trip actually takes place. Also, the ever continuing industrial action being taken by the rail unions on Southern Rail also means, that trips can be completely impossible at worst or risky at best. This can mean other trips are substituted at very short notice. Any queries – firstname.lastname@example.org alternatively phone Max on 01243 828394.
