The Liverpool Consultation Meeting is on the  6th August 2016, 2 - 4pm at the Augustus John, Peach St, City Centre, Liverpool, L3 5TX

Welcome to the Website of CAMRA Liverpool & District

Welcome to our new website. The new site still needs some tidying up so please bear with us. I am aware the site is slow and some of the pages are out of date. This is been worked on. The new site is designed to be more responsive and easier to use on mobile phones and tablet. All the content from the previous site is still here.

Why did we change the website? The system we used to manage the website was no longer supported. Eventually all the plugins we use would stop working and we would have no website.
