CAMRA Launches #PullingTogether Campaign

Pubs, breweries and taprooms are fighting for their very survival against the Coronavirus. Many are finding different and innovative ways to help their business weather the crisis – whether this is by launching hot food deliveries, encouraging locals to buy ‘gift cards’ for the summer or crowdfunding. There are plenty of ways that you can help support your favourite local business during this time of crisis, whilst adhering to the Government advice on social distancing measures

About Us

For a long time, campaigning for CAMRA interests in Manchester city centre was traditionally split between the eight Greater Manchester branches.

In 2016 at a regional meeting, it was recognised that the city centre would be best served with its own dedicated branch of CAMRA.  And so the Central Manchester branch was born.

The Central Manchester branch was full of ambition and within the first four months of existence, held our first beer and cider festival at the People’s History Museum.

We continue to go from strength to strength, our diverse team of keen volunteers are proud to campaign for local Pubs and Clubs, putting real ale and cider at the heart.

About CAMRA

Formed in 1971 by four like minded, real ale enthusiasts who shared a disappointment with the increasingly poor quality of beer, CAMRA campaigns to have good quality real ales, ciders and perries and to have thriving pubs and clubs in every community.

CAMRA is an independent consumer campaign and our campaign objectives are set by our membership.

Campaigns are run nationally, regionally and locally.  Nationally, CAMRA produces the Great British Beer Festival, the Good Beer Guide, the Champion Beer of Britain Awards and the Pub of the Year Award.

Thanks to the way Branches are structured, when you join the campaign you have the opportunity to join your nearest branch (e.g. Central Manchester) and get involved in the local campaigns social activities and beer festivals.

Central Manchester CAMRA has a number of campaigns and events, such as the Central Manchester beer Festival, Pub of the Year Awards and regular socials.  If you want to get involved, please contact us or see our memberships page.
