CAMRA Membership and Products
If you're thinking of joining CAMRA a list of current benefits can be found online at www.camra.org.uk/benefits or by calling CAMRA HQ on 01727 867201. We are an independent, voluntary, consumer organisation which campaigns for real ale, real pubs and consumer rights. CAMRA is financed through membership subscriptions, sales of products, and from the proceeds of beer festivals.
At the festival we'll be running a Membership Stand. Here our volunteer team will be able to answer your questions about CAMRA membership. They'll also be selling an array of CAMRA books and clothing.
As in previous years, you'll see our staff looking smart wearing their Winchester Beer & Cider Festival polo shirts. We get so many enquiries from customers asking "Where can I get one?" that they are available for customers to order at the festival. Please visit the Membership Stand at the festival for more information.
