I wonder if you can help. I've recently joined CAMRA and as I literally work round the corner to the CIA I was considering offering to help out during my lunch hour next week if anything needs doing.

While reading the Staffing Guidlines on the Festivals website, I read the following:

Please note that on the Friday 12th June, due to the
Oasis concert at the Millennium Stadium, there will be NO GLASSES allowed in the arena.
You may bring your own leather/pewter tankards or use a polycarbonate glass.
It's under the heading 'Staff Glasses', but I take it this extends to everyone. I bet this is likely to cause riots (ok, a slight exaggeration), and it certainly puts me off going on the Friday. Was it a condition of being granted i license or something silly like that?

Great blog by the way, I've been following it for a few months now via my RSS reader (although the the tone of the last two posts are rather over aggressive in my opinion!)

Glad you like the blog.
Regarding plastic glasses, CAMRA have to book this venue over a year in advance, it is only recently we have been told by the authorities that the CIA falls into the designated city centre zone to have plastic. There was nothing we could do about it, though we did try to object to the rulling, it seems one of the laws that New Labour passed allows the police to declare areas glass free. Saying that the polycarbonates will have a brewery logo on them.
"The last two posts over aggressive" well I blame the weather! And it does boost up the stats!

Rhys Wynne said...

I thought it would be down to some really silly rule or other. What a shame that the authorities couldn't/wouldn't be persuaded that such a well managed event would prevent any glasses leaving the site (but I don't want to set you off again!).

Maybe there will be a boost in leather tankard sales on the day!

Brew Wales said...

From what I understand the objection is not to glasses leaving the site, but to customers drinking out of them!
