Festival of the Moon: Pub Trail

4, 3, 2,1! The countdown has begun! As part of the Festival of the Moon, Newbury’s summer pub trail launches on 15 August!

Take part in our moonlit pub trail and explore all of the fantastic venues Newbury has to offer. Collect your trail card from any of the venues taking part or request a downloadable copy from our website.

Purchase a drink in each pub to receive a stamp, once you have collected all 16 stamps from all 16 pubs, complete your details on the card and drop it off at The Catherine Wheel for a chance to WIN one of our amazing prizes, including our GRAND PRIZE worth £300 courtesy of the Newbury Real Ale Festival.

The pub trail ends on 3 September, meaning that you have over 2 weeks to complete the trail – we are advocates of safe drinking and would advise against completing the trail in one day!
