CAMRA celebrates and promotes traditional cider and perry every May and October. This year sees the first Leicester Cider Trail, open to all drinkers of traditional cider, (made with fermented apple or pear juice, served out of a bag in box or through a hand pump) and not just CAMRA members. The format is simple: visit the pubs, collect a sticker when ordering a pint or half pint of traditional cider or perry, and attach the sticker to the grid. When you have 10 stickers, fill in your name and address and send the completed form for the chance to win a Trail T-Shirt (sizes are M, L, XL and XXL and women’s styles are available).


Leicester is a great place to drink cider, which is available in more pubs than are taking part in the Trail. The Wild Card spaces are for these pubs: write in the name of the pub and the date, and ask bar staff to initial it.

For those wanting to discover more about traditional cider there will be two tutored pub crawls taking in many of the pubs on the trail.  Why not come along?
