    With the return to school, and (limited) return to the office for some, we're also hoping to re-introduce more return to social


    Our next event will be a wine tasting - from the comfort of your own home, or, if you wish, joining a small group of other VCL members, weather permitting.

    We've organised a bespoke (virtual) wine discovery session. In a 2 hour interactive session, we will explore the differences between Fizz, White, and Red, Old World vs. New World, and also the different grape varieties and production methods. The aim is to get you exploring, understanding, and enjoying a variety of wines, whilst knowing what all the different styles are when looking at a wine list. 

    We will also receive recommendations for cheese and charcuterie pairings.

    If you'd like to join, sign up by 5th September. 


    Details:

    23 September 2020, 8pm start

    Login and link to follow after registration.

    Cost: £15pp members, £25 non members. The cost includes delivery 6 miniature wines and tasting glasses, as well as the expert's time of course.


    You will get asked for your address, and whether you'd like to join a small group in person.


    We hope to "see" you there and look out for more event announcements over the coming days!

    UPDATE 10/09: regulations starting 14 September ("rule of 6") will make the walk on 4 October difficult. We will assess the situation a week beforehand, and if needed, will reschedule the walk.


    In 140 minutes a guide will take us through hundreds of years of the African presence and contribution to London’s way of life. We'll discover secret alleyways and enormous buildings all connected to Africa and the Caribbean in ways which the owners do not want us to know.

    Find out about Black loyalists and African revolutionaries. Uncover the submerged links between racism, trade, religion, slavery and politics which are still evident in the very streets and buildings of the oldest part of London. This walk features:

    • Ancient African architecture 
    • African influence on European romance
    • British wealth, African resources
    • Secret societies, world economics and the church
    • African Female Resistance leaders
    • African-American soldiers
    • Black freedom fighters in 1700’s London
    • Race,Class,Gender,Economics, Science, literature and much more
