Details of the Hash CAMRA Event        

The Hash ‘CAMRA’ has been touring southern England and is now venturing overseas to the IOW.
There is a ‘Beer and Buses’ event on the island on Saturday and Sunday which is about 50 pubs running their own ‘mini festival’ with guest ales and vintage buses running a series of route between the pubs. We will join with the IOW Hash for a run on Sunday 15 Oct and enjoy the transport between pubs the rest of the weekend

Option 1 – Weekend Away

We have booked a number of chalets at Lower Hythe Holiday Park , Shanklin. We can add to the bookings as and when people sign up.

Each chalet is centrally heated with a kitchen, bathroom , lounge , a double bedroom and a twin bed room. Winchester Hash used the site in Marc h (in the snow) and they were happy with the accommodation. Each accommodation comes with a free ferry crossing for a car and 4 passengers


Friday 12th          

Travel to the IOW

1900 – A pub crawl Hash run in Shanklin

Saturday 13th     

Vintage Buses leave from the Shanklin Railway station on 4 different routes to the various pubs participating in the Beer Festival                                

Historically the organisers have allocated a bus to the IOW hash which follows one of the routes.  We may get this again which allows us to move together or you can freelance

Sunday 14th        

1100 - The CAMRA Run hosted by  IOW Hash. 

PM  - buses to visit various pubs until time for your ferry home (if you must)

Evening - Sunday social back at the site??

Monday 15th

1000 – Vacate accommodation

Price Approx £30 per person  (based on 4 people sharing)

-          This includes a programme which gives you the bus timetables (this is the way that the buses can get some income ) and a discount on the beers (it appears if you drink 11 pints you move into profit)

-          There is no provision of food or drink but you are in easy walking distance of Shanklin

-          This is intended to be a “at Cost” event if couples or families want accommodation for sole occupation it will be at booking price

-          If you want to create your own group of 4 to an accommodation that is good

-          We will assign accommodation to fill spaces so singles will share the twin rooms where possible

-          Larger groups ? We can book caravans for up to 6 people if required

-          The reserved accommodation is on a first come first served basis and more can be booked subject to availability and prices may vary for later bookings.


Option 2

Come to the IOW on the Sunday morning in time for the Hash Run,  participate in Beer and Buses and return to the North Island on the Sunday evening.  Buses run from the ferry terminal and the Hash Run will be on / near a bus route or the railway.

Cost – Depends.  There are historically cheap fares on this weekend (£10 return last year) .  Booking a train plus ferry as a combination is a good deal as well as avoiding her need to drive!

You will be making your own travel arrangements however joining up with others for a 4 people traveling together train fairs or group ferry bookings is recommended
