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

ABOUT CAMRA

CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale is an independent, voluntary organisation once (Dec 2019) with 192,289 members campaigning for real ale, community pubs and consumer rights. Down (Dec 2022) to a six-year low of 157, 613 possibly due to the pandemic without beer festivals for renewals/new members.. But it could be that now members have be deprived of a monthly What’s Brewing paper and can only view it online that they find it no longer value for money? 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.

The Albion Pub, Victoria Park The Albion on 36 Lauriston Road is under threat. This pub closed in 2015 following the death of the publican.

The East London & City Branch of CAMRA registered this pub as an Asset of Community Value in 2016 and will be objecting to the change of use with Hackney Council. The Albion dates from 1833 and lies within the Victoria Park Conservation Area. Whatpub site.
