Save the date: Royal Ascot & Henley Royal Regatta

Hello Tastourians,


Massive adrendile rush!!!  I've just confirmed the dates of two of our major social events of 2012.

Tastour is not just about the food and drink.  It's about new experiences and discoveries with other people who share the same passion for enjoying the finer things in life.

Both of these events blew my mind away and I can't say which is better.We had several people who attended both events, and they loved them both!

They are both fairly expensive and within the week of each other, which is why I'm sending out the mail now (maybe a good Christmas present)


A glorious day out at one of the highlight events of the British Summer. Kelly has now taken me to two traditional sporting events - Ascot and Henley. Both were thoroughly researched, well thought out and planned, with a few lessons in the history, etiquette and traditions thrown in. Thank you for two great days Kelly. - Liza


23rd June Royal Ascot  £150


* The most popular and prestigious horse racing event of the year
* A piece of British Heritage – the ultimate British experience.
* A great day out and a good excuse to get dressed up
* An experience you will never forget
* All bout the people and hat watching
* A chance to see the Queen
and rub shoulders with her friends!
 In other words, it’s THE social gathering of the year!

FEEDBACK: "It was the most British day I've had since moving here a year ago. I saw the queen and won a little cash and got totally swept up in the people watching. ” Lisa


30th June  Henley Royal Regatta £90


This Tastour takes you to Henley-on-Thames, one of England’s most charming villages famous for it's 150 year old rowing tradition, fine food/drink & people-watching.

Join us to celebrate on of the most important dates in society’s social calendar.  On this exclusive event, you’ll learn the history of this traditional British Experience as you sample the unique atmosphere of Henley Royal Regatta.

We'll also be learning the difference between Demi-Sec and Brut Champagne.

(PS I promise I will be better behaved this year! :) )

FEEDBACK: 'Fantastic experience! and Kelly is an amazing organiser and host! would love to do it again next year!'- Ksenia



With this group you can always rsvp, even if you are a maybe, then confirm later with payment. I like it when people rsvp, as it means I can send emails to the that group with updates.  For all events, rsvping on meetup, does not mean I am holding a ticket for you, you need to pre-pay to play.  Fyi-Henley is DEF going to sell out early as there are only 15 places. 


Notes on the Cost of the events:

If you've been to one of my events before, you know I always OVER deliver.  Both events will include the 'posh' tickets, food and drink and transport. The price is set so that if you organised it yourself, it would cost around the same, it's great value for money and from the feedback from previous years,  I know you will have one of the best days of your life...

To reduce the cost

1. Pay early

2. Join the membership program.  It's a great way to keep in touch with the people you've met as you can attend the social drinks for free (meaning that you can easily get your money back from the membership)

3. Get a group of at least 4 friends together and I'll give you a group discount


General notes

Although these are fairly expensive events, we do host many events around the £10-30 mark so please don't think that all of our events are so dear.

I put a lot of thought as to what is best for the attendees and the group dynamics, so whilst we could reduce the cost and get the train, not include food ect ect, it's all about helping you bond with the group and making sure you have a fantastic day. 

Each year the events improve and I learn how to make things better. Thanks so much to everyone who has provided excellent feedback.  Most importantly I'm so enthused by your energy and excitement for the events I put together. 



I am so excited, I can't wait!!!  I'll have a smile on my face all week just thinking about it :)


Hope to see you soon!
