F.O.F.B. Events Diary


Where requested it is advisable to register attendance intention - just in case there are any last minute changes - it also helps plan future events - ensuring venues are suitable and large enough.

Here is the diary for the Pub History Society - associated to the Friends of the Froth Blowers.



Saturday 17th March 2018      Brum Trudge 2018. Not Brum but Warwick.    Cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances 12/03/18
                                             Warwick has four or five other good drinking hostelries within easy walking distance of each other (we don’t have to trudge from Birmingham).
                                             London (Marylebone) to Leamington Spa : Leamington Spa to Warwick (Central, not Parkway) is inexpensive (c. £15 return) and reasonably frequent (10.40- 12:12.01/12.33 (10 mins).
                                             Trudge: Warwick Station – Wild Boar (Slaughterhouse tap - leave 1.15) – Punch Bowl leave (2 p.m.) – Rigsby’s Cellar Bar (leave 2.45) – Old Post Office (leave 3.30) – Pickled Crab (leave 5.30) – Station.
                                             Numbers required for food at the Pickled Crab – 4 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. – a shared platter of fruits de mer would be on offer (c. £20 x 2) but simpler shellfish, fish and other delights, too.

It is with sadness that David Rowe is having a well needed break and 'retiring' from his talk and lecture circuit.

Thanks David for spreading the word and bringing the memory of the AOFB to so many.
David informs me that he will spend more of his time putting together another book.



F.O.F.B.  David Rowe has a new book out 'The A-Z of Curious Flintshire' featuring an article on the A.O.F.B. under 'Y' .
The book is available to order now from :  http://www.thehistorypress.co.uk/index.php/the-a-z-of-curious-flintshire-pb.html
