What we're about

Canterbury, Herne Bay & Whitstable is one of 200 local CAMRA branches, covering the three main towns in the area plus outlying villages.

As well as supporting CAMRA's national and local campaigns, the branch has an active social calendar. We also hold monthly meetings to discuss CAMRA business, always at a pub in the branch area.

The branch area is home to the Kent Beer Festival (http://www.kentbeerfestival.com/) and we organise the CAMRA Cricket Tents at Kent County Cricket Club’s annual Cricket Weeks, held in Canterbury and Tunbridge Wells. See Cricket Tents (https://www.meetup.com/CAMRACanterbury/pages/21639342/Cricket_Tents/)
