Come to the Beaufort on Friday 31st July for a sumptuous BBQ celebrating our very own Long Shorn Silver. Start time 4pm.
After missing out on being in the Shaun in the City Trail in Bristol, 1st Hawkesbury Guides compensated the Beaufort by kindly presenting their very own version as part of the Shaun the Sheep Challenge. The talent we have in this village…
Quality burgers and bangers from award winning local producers, complemented by some nifty entertainment, please come along and have a good time.
All proceeds to the Grand Appeal and Long John Silver Trust – Pirate dress optional.
Huge thanks to everyone who attended our recent celebratory Beer Festival and making the event such a success.
In addition to receiving a lovely gift and presentation from Dursley and District CAMRA we managed to raise over £130 for Bristol Children’s Hospital, care of Yate Supplies’ fantastic Antique Rose Gromit.
Many thanks once again,
Long John Steedsy – Landlord
Calling all literary/history fans who like a bit of a walk.
|Bristol Walk Fest 2015 | Bristol City Council|
Long John Silver Trust historian Mark Steeds is a signed up member of Bristol’s exciting Walking Festival and is conducting two tours around Bristol’s historic heart on Thursday 7th and Thursday 28th May.
The walks are entitled “Bristol’s Treasure Island Influences” and are numbers 32 and 156 in the festival programme.
Starting at Bristol’s bombed out Temple Church just off of Victoria Street, we’ll start off with brewer’s tales, from the Knights Templar to Sir John Hawkins, lead sponsor of Woodes Rogers’ great 1708 circumnavigation that rescued the prototype of Robinson Crusoe and originated a host of other key episodes of Britain’s history.
We’ll wander past the Cornubia and Seven Stars (the pub that helped change the world), the Exploration statue, the former Talbot Hotel and Bristol Bridge, the site of St Peter’s Hospital to talk about Dr Thomas Dover, the ruins of the old castle keep where Defoe met maroon Alexander Selkirk, Southey’s birthplace in Wine Street and then the Rummer, home of Coleridge’s first publication.
Back to Bristol Bridge and on to Welsh Back and the Llandoger Trow, talk about Smollett and Swift of Humphrey Clinker and Gulliver’s Travels fame respectively, and on up King Street to the Merchant Venturers Alsmhouses that gave birth to William Williams’ Journal of Llewellin Penrose – seaman, the origins of the pirate treasure map in literature, cross Queen’s Square, past Rogers’ house to the Hole-in-the-Wall to finish on Blackbeard and Robert Louis Stevenson’s immortal Treasure Island – phew!
The walk starts at 11.30am on the 7th and 2.30pm on the 28th – duration 2 to 3 hours, cost free. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place, although it’s not essential.
Supporting Bristol’s Children’s Hospital, special guest star pooch, Cath Kidston’s ‘Antique Rose Gromit’ kindly supplied by Yate Supplies.
Yer ’tis (finally) the line up for our big weekend: –
Don’t forget, discounts for Bristol and Glos CAMRA members and our top notch regulars, come and help us celebrate.
Our Beer Festival is shaping up and will consist of mostly local beers from the following breweries: –
Arbor, Bath Ales, Bristol Beer Factory, Butcombe Brewery, Cotswold Spring, Moor Beer Company, Severn Vale Brewing, Tiny Rebel and Wickwar Brewery.
We’re also hoping to put on ciders from Orchard Pig, Thatchers and Westons.
More details as and when, please keep May 1st, 2nd and 3rd free.
This May, the Beaufort Arms will be celebrating an amazing 20 years in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide – without a break.
Perhaps uniquely, this has been achieved within two different CAMRA branches and along the way the pub has received several CAMRA awards, culminating in the Gloucestershire CAMRA Pub of the Year accolade in 2004.
After all of these years we’re now going to mount our first mini-Beer Festival. To help commemorate this achievement all card carrying Bristol and Glos CAMRA members will be entitled to a discount of 50p a pint during the fest period.
To all of our friends past and present, please come along on May 1st, 2nd and 3rd and help make it go with a swing.
