Pauntley Real Ale Festival

The Stroud RE Group, in conjunction with CAMRA Gloucester Branch, are pleased to present their first joint trip to the above Real Ale Festival, now in its 5th year and attracting a significant amount of interest, although not easy to get to by public transport. Well, we will rectify that! Also on offer at this event will be Real Lagers, Ciders, Perries and Wines, as well as a Pork Roast, vegetarian foods and lots of live entertainment, with any profits raised going to local good causes (please see  for further details).
