Welcome to Arun & Adur CAMRA

Our branch covers the area between the rivers Arun (in the west) and Adur (in the east) and the A272 (in the north), with the sea being the southern boundary (see this map). This means that Arundel, Lancing, Littlehampton, Petworth, Pulborough, Steyning, Storrington, Worthing and the many villages, all form part of the branch. There are nearly 200 pubs and bars in our branch area and over 155 serve real ale, and there are over 800 branch members.

We have a beer festival every year, the dates for 2018 are the 26th and 27th October and more details can be found here
