UCL Women Wine Tasting Event – 23 November 2018


Join us for a very special evening of fine wine tasting given by Kathleen Burk, Professor Emerita of Modern and Contemporary History. Kathy is the Cellarmistress of the UCL Professors’ Dining Club cellar, which dates from the 19th century. She also judges wines internationally and is responsible for the German, Austrian and Virginian sections of a large wine guide, ‘Wine Behind the Label’. She has gathered together some utterly delicious wines from Germany and Austria for you to taste and enjoy.

There will also be bread, quality cheeses and fruit selected to complement the drinks – and of course, good conversation!

Although the event will be half subsidized by UCL Women, your contribution of approx £20 (including Eventbrite surcharge) will allow us to bring in exceptionally high-quality wines.

You must book to attend, and spaces are limited.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Friday afternoon, 15.30-18.30
UCL Department of Psychology
26 Bedford Way
Room 305

New academic year – new gathering dates for your diary!

A beautiful endless summer has finally given way to cool nights, rain, falling leaves and the return of students. So it’s time to start thinking about building your network again!

UCL Women is a supportive and friendly place where you can meet other UCL Women (academics, postdocs and PhD students) and talk about the issues that matter to you. We started out as a network for women in STEM, but now we are open to all discipline areas. Bring your colleagues and friends!

Here are our dates for Term 1 – details to follow closer to the time.

  • 22 October lunch 13.00: discussion theme: Saying No!
  • 23 Nov late afternoon wine tasting with cheese and nibbles 15.30-18.30
  • 12 Dec lunch (festive baking special!) 12.30

As usual, unless otherwise stated, all events will be held in room 305 of the hospitable Department of Psychology: 26 Bedford Way, WC1H 0AP. Go to the seminar room on the 3rd floor. You can buy drinks and sandwiches at the Café next door to the seminar room, or from one of the many eateries in Torrington Place, or bring your own!
