Join us for a fantastic evening tasting fine wines and meeting fine people. You'll enjoy an evening of socialising and an hour of interactive wine education. At this social gathering you'll be entertained with cheeky humour, fun facts and story telling. This is a stand up mixer, with the option to sit down, so you'll meet lots of like minded people whilst you learn about the crushed grape - the only prerequisite require to join is curiosity.
It's our 10th year hosting this monthly event, and it just keeps getting better and better!
Please note, this tasting starts at 7pm, however, you can arrive from 6pm to socialise. Easy to get to venue, one minute walk from the tube :)

The Walrus and The Carpenter takes its name from a poem by Lewis Carroll. The verse is recited by Tweedledum and Tweedledee in 'Through The Looking Glass'. We stand in the shadow of history, in view of The Monument to commemorate the Great Fire of London. The column's height marks the distance to the site of Thomas Farynor's bakery in Pudding Lane where the fire began.
