Fun Wine Tasting and Quiz – Saturday 21st March - Town Hall Annexe - 7.00pm

Another chance to join us for our fun wine tasting and quiz. Taste some new wines, learn more about the producers and test your knowledge with your teammates!

Gather your friends and neighbours to form a team of 6 just for fun. We'll be joined again by Simon, ex-Appellation Nation, who now works at Phoenix Wines in Cirencester to introduce us to some new tipples.

Don’t worry if you can’t make up a team yourself, we will find you a team to join.

£13 per adult, and obviously this event is not suitable for children...

Canapés and cheese provided with vegan and gluten-free options - please let us know if you have dietary requirements.

During the evening you will receive a glass of sparkling wine and tasters for six wines.

The simplest way to book tickets is via TicketSource. However, if you are not happy signing up and paying for tickets online, please email Chris Faulkner at (preferred) or phone on 07710075406.

Raffle prizes and help setting up on the night would be welcome.
