Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus Update – 10th Sept 2020


We are Open for Business!!      


Online Events and In Person at our Venues in London


Following the Government's updated advice on 9th September 2020, PLEASE READ HERE FOR RULES ON MEETING OTHERS SAFELY we have been talking to the management teams at our venues about our wine tasting events and courses and how best to run them safely, to help protect our customers, tutors and the venue team. 

What about the 'Rule of 6'?

 The Government's new rule means you can attend our events as a single person, a couple or a small group of 3-6 people but you cannot now attend as a party of more than 6. The rule doesn't mean you can't come into a venue if it already has more than 6 people inside and the government have since clarified this.


With our Risk Assessments satisfactorily completed, we are open for business as usual and will not take any bookings from people in a groups of 6 or more.



In Person Wine Tastings - at The Loft, St Luke’s Centre, just off Old Street
