Campaign for Real Ale

Welcome to the East and Mid Surrey Branch of CAMRA

The East and Mid Surrey branch (formerly the Reigate and Redhill branch) was founded on the 10th August 1975 at the height of the keg revolution. Our inaugural meeting was at the Nutley Hall in Reigate.

We changed our name to become the East and Mid Surrey branch at the 1998 AGM as we thought that described the area we covered better. The boundaries have changed several times, the last time in early 2009. The branch currently stretches over to the Kent border, down to the Sussex Border and across to Alfold. The main towns in the area are Warlingham, Caterham, Oxted, Lingfield, Horley, Redhill, Reigate, Banstead, Dorking and Cranleigh.

REDHILL BEER FESTIVAL

Our showcase event and highlight of the branch's calendar, the festival is located in Merstham Village Hall and runs for 3 days in late October/early November every year.

We aim to have around 65 real ales and 10 ciders on offer along with hot food.

The next event is :-

TBA October/November 2020
