Real Ale Runabouts

Real Ale Runabouts were  a programme of visits to our 'Hidden Gems' - those rural public houses that are difficult to reach by public transport - run for Colchester CAMRA.

Runabouts generally took place on the second Thursday of each month with Sunday Runabouts included during the Summer. They used community minibuses for transport.

107 Runabouts took place between May 2011 to March 2020.

They were ended, first by the Covid-19 pandemic then by the loss of the transport used by the runabouts. Despite the efforts of the Runabout committee they have been unable to source a viable alternative.
