Not just a Lunch - but virtual events and activities fundraising to support veterans into employment


What better way to transport yourself to the stunning french countryside than through the finest champagnes and wine France has to offer. Delivered directly to your door and enjoyed with the leading figures from the industry we can't think of a better way to enjoy an evening escaping from it all.

Choose from an evening with James Simpson Master of Wine from Pol Roger accompanied by a delicious bottle of Pol Roger to savour or escape to the vineyards of Bordeaux as Edouard Moueix talks us through the history, making, and the character of the wines of Moueix. Or why not join us for both and savour every drop of this wonderful tasting experience. 

Pol Roger Champagne Masterclass

James Simpson MW

Wednesday 17 March 6.30pm - 7:45pm

A wonderful start to our virtual programme as James and Jonathan expertly guided us through the history, present and future plans of this iconic champagne.

"We were delighted to attending the first event in the 2021 Virtual Lord Mayor’s Big Curry.  What a cracking start!  James Simpson, the UK CEO of Pol Roger talking knowledgeably about the fascinating history of champagne making and what makes Pol Roger so special.  The evening was brilliantly hosted By Jonathan Ray, Wine Editor of The Spectator, 75 minutes flew by as I listened to these two experts in conversation and we really enjoyed the bottle of Pol which had arrived two days previously.  Can’t wait for next week’s Red Bordeaux Master Class from Edouard Moueix and then author and traveller Sir Michael Palin in conversation with Levison Wood”.
