Long Wittenham’s Pour My Bluff @ Village Hall
Nov 11 @ 7:30 pm

Come along for an evening of wine tasting and general hilarity.  Yes, it’s the long awaited return of Pour My Bluff to Long Wittenham.

Six wines tasted blind;  three ‘experts’ trying to convince you that they know what each wine is – but only one of them will be telling the truth, the other two will be lying through their teeth!  Are your taste buds good enough to identify the wine?!

Compered by Lesley-Anne Doveston, who will be known to many – ably supported by two other wine ‘experts’ from the village.

Tickets cost £20 which includes 6 glasses of wine, a ploughman’s supper, and a thoroughly fun and entertaining evening.  Come on your own or team up with your friends and come as a team!

The event will be held in Long Wittenham Village Hall on Saturday 11th November, starting at 7.30, and is run by the Long Wittenham Twinning Association to raise money to support twinning activities with Thaon.

Tickets are available from:

Sue Tucker at sue@the-tuckers.org.uk or 01865 407915
Steph Martin at steph@devryn.co.uk or 01865 407395
