It’s been a while since this website was updated but that’s mainly because we have been waiting to have some news to tell you and also because we were aiming to have a shiny new website design as well. Unfortunately, this hasn’t actually happened but it is planned for 2019.
Our last event of the season was a cracker! Hughenden Manor near High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire was awash with wartime activities and entertainment with various army camps (including our Russian allies still with snow on their boots), live entertainers, the Home Guard, Landgirls, the ATS, the RAF and civilians all immaculately and accurately dressed. read more
It was very early when I arrived in the Market Place at Newbury – just me, a couple of delightful streetcleaners in shiny new beeping machines and the local drunk on his way home…. or his way out, I wasn’t sure. read more
A last minute change of plan saw Ruby’s in the Shop and Taproom at the West Berkshire Brewery in Yattendon, rather than a marquee outside and it all worked wonderfully!
We were part of the action and the whole venue was abuzz with conversation and music from Serena Lin. read more
Is this possibly the best combination in the world? Well, it’s your chance to find out this Saturday 18th August when Ruby’s comes to the West Berkshire Brewery & Tap Room. read more
What are the chances of having the same weekend at the same venue with the same scorching weather? Well, it happened again at our 2 day event at Millets Farm Centre near Abingdon.

Ruby’s had 2 events in 2 weekends and, as it typical with an English summer, you could not get 2 more contrasting days of weather!
Sunday 17th June saw us at Sandhurst Military Academy’s Heritage Open Day for the second year. Our marquee was in a different position and thanks to the Army, slightly more open to the elements. Now that would have been perfect last year when it was the hottest day so far but this year saw wind and drizzle. But in true British style, we carried on. read more
It’s our first event of the year on Sunday! Yes, I know the year is half over but as mentioned before, we are concentrating on taking Ruby’s to events rather than running the events themselves. read more

Tucked away in the idyllic village of Yattendon, nr Newbury, is a brewery. Not just any brewery, one that’s grown from a few sheds behind the Pot Kiln pub in Frilsham to the high tech modern brewery of today in an old dairy. The hugely successful West Berkshire Brewery has asked Ruby’s to bring vintage and retro to their Tap Room on Saturday 18th August. read more
