Advanced notice that on Saturday 17th September, the Bolton Branch is planning a trip to the Lytham Beer Festival, also incorporating a visit to legendary pub “The Taps”.   The Festival is free entry for CAMRA members.

Links: –  Beer Festival – the Taps

At present I am proposing to go on the train as this will give people the flexibility to do what they want.  The ticket is £11.80 return.  It is only a walk of about half a mile to the venue.  If there is sufficient interest I can price up a small coach as an option.

The train leaves Bolton at 12.15 and arrives in Lytham at 13.21 (change at Preston).

Suggested trains back are 17:58 or 18:58 but there are later ones.

Let me know if you are interested and I’ll put your name down and provide final details close to the time.
