Hi Alun, I’m Tim from TWS’s Tastings & Events Team.
As @Winestwit has pointed out, whilst you miss out on the “live experience” you can watch all of our events in your own time, either through YouTube or by registering and requesting a recording for those we don’t stream.
But if it is a live taste along experience you are after I will leave it for other members to point you to the “competition”.
Just to explain our start times, we regularly conduct research and to date preferences have been pretty evenly split across the evening. Thus we tend to go for an earlier start as although you miss out on the live experience, those who wish to view it later can do so on the same night or in their own time. We do however mix it up from time to time to try to reach more members so do keep an eye on the calendar.
