What we’re about
'probably the best meetup in the world' as one member reviewed.
Plan your 2020 Foodie adventures with us! Once lock down is over, we will all be ready to indulge with good food and laughter. Sign up for free to to our meetup and we will let you know when our next event is :)
We may even have a isolation tasting online, so stay tuned!
For all our events you are welcome to attend on your own, or forward this to your friends who are not on meetup.
We have hosted over 500 meetups in the past 10 years. We offer events for people to pay as you go which are open for you to attend on your own, or for you to invite friends not on meetup. No membership is required, so what are you waiting for, come join the fun!
We also host private events exclusively for our Bon Vivant who pay an annual membership of £80 per year.
With membership you can attend our monthly social wine tasting for free (Non Member Price is £25 per person, with an early booking discount of £5) as well as receive invites from other members to enjoy Bring your own bottle events, as well as dinner parties hosted in members homes, theatre, dancing, holidays and various others.

About the attendees:
Our members vary in age, with the average being around 30-50. However, ALL AGES ARE WELCOMED. The one thing our members have in common is interesting conversation, the echos of latest holiday adventures or recent gastronomical experience are in the air with laughter and good cheer.
About the host/founder:
Kelly Bayliffe created Tastour in 2008 as a place for a diverse mix of singles and couples of all ages to come together to laugh, learn and share food and drink experiences throughout the world - mainly in London, but we do travel together too! Her events are light hearted yet educational, using her unique spectrum of skills as the UK's "Wine Educator of the Year", a stand up comic, laughter yoga instructor and relationship coach. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge, helping others make meaningful connections and enjoying life enriching experiences of all kinds. You are welcomed to attend on your own, with a partner or friends.
Our events are listed on other sites and the number of people signed up to meetup does not reflect the total number attending.
