During the year we like to participate in a few trips to far off places
and visit some of the pubs there. Our previous tours have included Birmingham,
York and London
and are usually organized by PHS Member, Mick Slaughter. The tours are usually
done in conjunction with Peterborough CAMRA to help make up the numbers. Non
Members are positively welcomed. If you would like to come along, would like
further details or would like to receive news of future tours, please send us a
message to that effect by visiting our message page.
Diary Dates for 2007
Order of Frothblowers a Talk in London
The King's Surgeon! The Jazz Age! Beer! Three Quasimasonic
Orders involved! Huge sums of money involved! More beer! A coup attempt in Africa!
The Port of Alexandria
vanishes! Even more beer! Uproar at the Stock Exchange! Mutiny in the Royal
Navy! From New York socialites to
military outposts on the Solomon Isles, Ye Ancient Order of Frothblowers
spread their tentacles to net hundreds of thousands of people into an
international conspiracy to… raise money for charity. Learn how the Comic
Relief of the 1920s raised as much money as Live Aid. And drink beer!
At The Moot with No Name, the Devereux (upstairs) in Devereux
Court, which is opposite the Royal Courts of
Justice, Strand, London.

5th May –
Joint PHS and Friend of the Froth Blowers social in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.
Meet at 1130 at the Draper’s Arms in Cowgatefor
coffee/tea, introductions and a bit of a chat.
At 1200 we embark upon a brief walking tour of 'Peterborough's
Lost Pubs' which will take us towards the town bridge and onto the Cherry Tree
in Oundle Rd
for our informal meeting. Lunch will be available at the pub - please let me know if
you require food as the landlady may have to make arrangements.
As usual our meeting will be a 'free & easy' affair with ample time
to socialise. Hopefully our Froth Blowing contingent
will have AOFB memorabilia to show and discuss.
Later in the afternoon there will be time to visit some local
hostelries including the Coalheaver's Arms in Park
St which will be holding a beer festival in the
beer garden. Other pubs worthy of visiting include the Palmerston
Arms (traditional local with beer straight from the cask), Charters (a floating
pub with more real ale). The other side of town, near to the railway station is
Brewery Tap - Europe's largest
brew pub and home to Oakham Ales.
