Victory Players presents – Wine Man’s Bluff @ Victory Hall
Nov 30 @ 7:30 pm

Do you know your Cabernet Sauvignon from your Carmenère? Our boozy quiz is back!
 
On Saturday 30 th November we’ll be hosting another round of Wine Man’s Bluff — the wine-tasting quiz night which went down rather well in 2016.
 
Our MC for the evening is Balcombe’s own wine educator and entertainer Charles Metcalfe. With his knowledge of wine from Albarino to Zinfandel, you’ll be guided
through a selection of blind tastings, helped or hindered by a cast of “international” characters that you may recognise from a certain local drama group.
It’s a fun evening – and no wine knowledge is required, but you may pick up some top tasting tips along the way.
 
Tickets £17.50 on sale from Threads (01444 811372) from 1st November.
Ticket includes: light supper and a glass of wine. You’ll also have the opportunity to buy good value bottles of selected wine.
 
Doors: 7pm. Start time 7.30pm.
Venue: Victory Hall, Balcombe.
