Obituary: Former ELAC stalwart Julian Farrow suffered a catastrophic burst ulcer and passed away 9th November in Spain. He was 66.  He had just took out Spanish Citizenship  after a lengthy period of administration which included him learning Spanish. Julian was, with Ted Eller instrumental in setting up the first festival in 1982.  He played for the ELAC darts team and ran the Ship & Blue Ball in Shoreditch before moving on to, among other pubs, the Alexandra Hotel in Chatham. It was from his living room that the first East London & City Beer Guide to be produced on a computer was processed into a form we could sent to the printers. RIP. London Beer & Pub Guide.

Campaigning for real ale, pubs & drinkers' rights since 1971.


CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale is an independent, voluntary organisation of over 190,000 members campaigning for real ale, community pubs and consumer rights. CAMRA acts as the champion for beer drinkers and pub-goers on issues ranging from protecting pubs from closing down, keeping the lid on the price of a pint and ensuring there is fair competition in the beer and pubs market. CAMRA supports well-run pubs as the centres of community life and believe their continued existence play a critical social role in UK culture.
