WRAF History

WRAF was formed in 2001 after a group of local ale drinkers were fed up of drinking the run of the mill and badly looked after ale. We wanted to see our pubs serving better quality beer and in an attempt to do this and after several trips to other festivals we thought we had enough info and knowledge to run our own festival and so WRAF was born!
