Stevenage - Members' festive lunch

We will convene in the Members’ Room for a refreshing bubbly aperitif, followed by a delicious four course meal of seasonal fare paired with five wines.
Our friendly Tastings team will be on hand to guide you through the wines and dishes, offering interesting insights into the wines, their producers, and their winemaking practices, and chatting through why the food and wine pairings were chosen.

Sit back, relax, and let the Tastings & Events team guide you through the wonders of food and wine pairing, whether it be at a restaurant takeover, themed dinner, Members’ lunch, or foodie masterclass. Our team will help members learn the building blocks of how the flavours and sensations in food and wine interact. The menus for the events are usually provided on registration but do let us know of any dietary or seating requirements.
Do you send physical tickets or is it all e-tickets?
We no longer send out physical tickets for our events. An email confirming registration will be sent to the member who has purchased the ticket(s) and this email can be used as confirmation upon arrival at the event.
Can I bring a non-member?
Yes. Tickets must be booked by a member, but you are welcome to bring non-member guests.
Do I need to know lots about wine to attend?
Absolutely not! Our events target a range of experience and knowledge levels, and we try to make this clear on our event pages. If you’re unsure if an event is for you, simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to help.
Do I get a discount on wines after events?
After our ‘in person’ events, we offer attendees a 10% discount on the wines we have shown, subject to availability. You will be provided with a private code after attending the event to redeem the discount
What is your cancellation policy?
Full details on our cancellation policy can be found here.
Can I join a waiting list for sold out events?
Yes. Please do feel free to join our waiting lists for sold out events. If tickets become available you will be contacted by email.
Ewan has been at The Society since January 2004. With nine years in the Tastings & Events team, followed by 10 years as The Society’s PR Manager, he has now returned to his ‘spiritual home’, hosting many of our in-person events. A fluent French and Italian speaker, he loves communing with our growers, imparting knowledge to members and making dreadful puns. Favourite food and wine pairing: poppadoms and Cristal 1997!
