STRAP Pup-Up Pub Events Announced

We would like to announce a programme of Pop-Up-Pub events to be held at Fairycroft House, 37 Audley Road, Saffron Walden, CB11 3HD

We are getting closer to being in a position to take over the Railway itself, but we are planning to take over the nearby (and brilliant) Fairycroft House for a series of Pop-up Pub evenings over the coming weeks/months – next event: Saturday 13th January 2018

Pop up Pub 5

Click here for a printable version of the flyer, print it off and bring it to the Pop up Pub event and you’ll get £1.00 off your first pint!

We’re really excited about this as it will allow us to meet regularly, share news and updates, meet new people and old friends and talk about the things that interest us and others – just like we’d do in the Railway in fact. Fairycroft House will become the Railway for a few hours each month and we’ll be able to support Tim Atkinson and his team in the great work they do there.

These fundraising events will help us in our campaign make The Railway Arms Saffron Walden’s first community pub. Share application continue to pour in and have now passed through the £225,000 mark.
However, it is extremely important that we raise more and continue the focus throughout the coming weeks. The more money we raise, the more attractive we will be to grant providers and community lenders.
Please come along for a drink from the bar and perhaps a meal; we can promise that the beer will be good and the menu will be regularly updated. There will be live (acoustic) music, a quiz night, a games room and an open mic night.
STRAP believe that we have a wonderful local community in Saffron Walden which is one reason why we would like to ensure the future of a community hub, The Railway.

If you haven’t already, there’s still time to apply for shares or to fill in the questionnaire to tell us what kind of pub you want the Railway to be. Or come along to the Pub-Up Pub and have a chat with us!
