    CHAIRMAN'SFESTIVAL REPORT 2015

    Dear Festivalgoer

    Welcome to the 20th Newark Beer Festival. Yes, it is hard to believe that we have had twenty glorious years of beer festivals in Newark. It all started in 1996 in the grounds of Newark Castle. On offer were 45 beers, 3 ciders and 1 perry. Despite rushing in further supplies on the Friday night the 2000 drinkers had drunk us dry by 8pm Saturday night.

    This year we have over 150 real ales from all over the country. I am certain you will find a style to suit your taste. We have some old favourites and some brand new beers from breweries just opened. We also have birthday beers, including one specially commissioned by a past Newark chairman to celebrate his milestone birthday. Ciders and perries continue to feature with another selection of over thirty to choose from.

    Hot and cold food is available throughout the weekend, live bands play and we hope for good weather. Two local charities will be collecting over the weekend. Please give generously.

    Of course, all of this would not be possible without the volunteers from Newark CAMRA who organise, set up, serve you and take down our beer festival. My thanks to them and especially the CAMRA festival committee who start planning this May event just after Christmas. We also need to thank the first aiders and countless others who step in when required to make our festival one of the best in the country.

    You may have noticed that we now have the National Civil War Centre in Newark. This is just a short walk from here. Why not follow the Civil War Ale Trail visiting pubs along the way?

    Finally, thank you, the real ale customer, for supporting us in your thousands each year. So, have a great festival and enjoy the experience in the Real Ale Hub of Newark.

    See you next year! Better still why not put Newark in your diary for a Real Ale weekend away?

    CheersAndrew Birkhead - Chairman, Newark CAMRA

    Our quarterly magazine the Beer Gutter Press is published by the Newark-on-Trent branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA). The Newark Branch of CAMRA strive to increase consumer choice of real ale by objecting to pub closures and championing high standards of customer service in the areas public houses. We support our local breweries by promoting the diversity they bring to the bar.

    Newark CAMRA also brings national issues such as tax and opening hours to local attention. Importantly, we are a social group of likeminded drinkers of all ages and walks of life. Anyone is welcome to attend our meetings, details of which can be found elsewhere in this issue.

    BGP welcomes local-interest beer related articles and letters for publication. All material should be sent to

    Newark Beer Festival is about more than drinking. A quality pint is usually enjoyed more if its accompanied by a foot tapping tune or two and we have that perfect mix this weekend. Our talent scouts spend many nights scouring the lands hot and sweaty venues in an attempt to find the right mix for washing down the ale and cider. Every year they bring us an entertaining mix of musical merriment.

    For those of you who prefer to sample their beers without music in the air, we have designated Friday afternoon as a music-free session. Youll be able to enjoy your tipple in relative serenity until early evening!

    Please note the list and timings may be subject to last minute changes due to circumstances beyond our control.

After a couple of line-up changes, they now consist of: David Hughes on Lead/Rhythm Guitar & Lead Vocals, Annie Thompson on Bass & Backing Vocals and Cameron Sunman on Drums & Backing Vocals.

    4.30PM - 5.30PM SWING NOUVEAUSwing Nouveau are based in Newark, but have performed at festivals and events throughout the UK. They take anything from classic jazz and swing, through to 80s pop to current chart material and give it a unique twist.

    THE NEWARK CRUSADER

    We were delighted to hear we had been chosen as one

    of Newark CAMRAs nominated charities this year. The Newark Crusader gives older, disabled and disadvantaged children and adults the opportunity for a relaxing trip along the River Trent.

    The boat is moored at Farndon Riverside and runs two hour trips twice daily. It is equipped with a ramp for wheelchair access and there is a large disabled toilet. Each trip allows for groups of up to 12 passengers (including carers) and always

    goes with a fully qualifi ed skipper and another crew member.

    We are strictly a charity and we are non-profi t making and the funds raised will help with the maintenance of the boat and refreshments for visitors.

    For more information or to make a booking contact Les Reid on 07879 420915 or visit www.newarkcrusader.com

    REACH NEWARKWe support adults with learning

    disabilities to reach beyond expectation and make a good life in

    their local community - a life full of meaning, challenge and opportunity.

    There are almost 15,000 adults with learning disabilities in Nottinghamshire today. Without the right support and meaningful things to do, many face loneliness, poor health and restricted lives.

    Reach currently supports over 150 adults in the county. We create opportunities for people to gain new skills and knowledge so that they can build happier, healthier lives.

    Where?Activities run Monday to Friday from our bases

    in Newark, Southwell, Mansfi eld and Flower Pod our social enterprise which is located just outside of Southwell. We also run a domiciliary care service (The Care Project) which provides truly personalised care for individuals with a variety of needs.

    What do we offer?Over 40 weekly courses such as cookery,

    gardening, arts and crafts, singing, fi tness, computers and dancing. Weekly socials, outings and holidays; for some the only chance to go away and which provides respite for family members.

    How is our service funded?As a charity we need to raise 100,000 a year

    just to survive and deliver our high quality service. We urgently need to raise funds so that we can reach more people. Please give generously at the Festival.
