CAMRA, Britain’s biggest real ale campaigning group, divides its national membership into regional and local branches. Cities such as Manchester, London, Birmingham, Glasgow, etc., have several branches serving different corridors, and some will still be expected to cover a wide area.
Greater Manchester has two major free distribution real ale magazines in circulation, one for South Manchester, promoted from Stockport, and a North Manchester based magazine too. They are created by volunteer editors and contributors and paid for through their advertising – mostly by local breweries and pubs.
The first writer created a longer (thirty minute) script about a killer joining a space-shot as a means to escape justice – the playlet incorporated man lines from Beatles songs as it was aimed at a competition themed around Beatles work. It was very entertaining and I hope it does well for him in the competition.
