Ever fancied owning a slice of brewing history? Then this Auction is just the thing for you. Run by the Campaign for Real Ale, the National Breweriana Auction returns to Burton on Trent’s Town Hall to celebrate its 33rd event on Saturday 24th November. It again promises over 150 interesting auction lots; everything from mirrors to trays; jugs, wall signs, bottles and books. Plus there are a number of stands selling brewery memorabilia adding to the atmosphere in this wonderful Victorian venue. And there are items from all over the country.
If you have never been to the National Breweriana Auction before, the auction is great fun to take part in and is an opportunity to get some great bargains and some great, and different, Christmas gifts plus many of the items on sale can appreciate in value. And, of course, like any CAMRA event, there is some good beer on sale all day (from a local brewery).
As we don't know how the situation will develop in the autumn, we will be instigating a few new measures including bigger distances between seats and we will be asking people to use hand sanitisers on entry. With such a big hall, we feel comfortable we can keep everyone safe.
10.30am start with the opportunity to view the lots and browse the breweriana stands that will also be there. Bidding starts at noon and is normally finished by 3pm, giving a chance to have a final perusal of the stands before visiting some of Burton’s iconic pubs and heading home. Entrance is by catalogue (£3.00), available on the day, or £4.29 (includes postage) in advance, by post from Bill Austin: 07789 900411 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
