Branch Social trip to Kendal

We have organised a coach trip to Kendal on Sat 27th July 2024. Branch members and their guests are welcome to attend, subject to availabiity.

Proposed Itinery

11:00 Coach leaves outside Wigan Northern Western Station

12:30 Arrives at Lakes Brew Co to join their “Birthday Bash”.

Lakes Brew Co. was founded by 4 staff cruelly made redundant in March 2020 by Hawkshead Brewery at the beginning of the Covid Lockdown. They created their own Brewery which opened in July 2021. The Brewery will have their own Cask and Keg Beers available (both of which featured at Wigan Beer Festival) plus a range of their Cans. They will have at least one street food vendor.

3:00 p.m. Coach leaves Brewery and Arrives at The New Union Pub (optional)

The New Union Pub is an Award winning Pub and was Westmoreland CAMRA Pub of the Year and Cider Pub of The years consecutively in 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 At the New Union Pub food will be available, including BBQ weather permitting

Between 3:00 and 7:00 p.m. you can choose your options but unless you stay at the New Union need to make your way through Kendal Town Centre to The Factory Tap, which is 0.8 mile or 14 minute Walk over the River (mainly downhill).

The good news is the following Good Beer Guide Pubs are enroute including:

  • Indie Craft Bar
  • Fell Bar
  • Factory Tap
  • The Barrel House (Bowness Bay Brewery Tap)

Plus over a dozen pubs/bars of varying types including a Wetherpoons, and the brewery tap for the Handsome Brewery in Kent Street.

7:00 p.m. Prompt Coach departs from The Factory Tap (previously Bowness Bay)

8:30 p.m. Coach returns at Wigan North Western Station.

The cost of the trip will be £20 per person, payable in advance. We need 40 participants to break even. Refunds will be paid if we have to cancel the trip due to low numbers or, if you decide you no longer want the place, we are able to sell that place on to another person.
