Slough, Windsor & Maidenhead CAMRA


This year, the festival is supporting the charity Age Concern (Slough & Berkshire East). This independant local charity (which is not part of the national Age UK charity) is committed to improving the quality of life for local people, their carers and families, so that they can enjoy a better life in later years. For more info, please see their Website.

Tue 19th to Mon 25th August 2014

As part of this year's celebrations, several Slough town centre pubs (all within easy walking distance), will be presenting a wide range of Real Ales and Ciders, sourced locally and nationally. As usual, the main focus will be on the "Slough Publicans Barrel Roll", which will take place on August Bank holiday Sunday.
