The wine expert and TV personality will be hosting two wine-tasting talks on Friday, May 16, organisers have revealed.

The show on May 16 and 17 will also feature gardener, author and TV presenter Toby Buckland; Anna Ryder Richardson, of Changing Rooms fame; Gardeners’ Question Time’s Eric Robson, and two Whitehaven favourites in celebrity chef Jean-Christophe Novelli and Coronation Street star turned cheese-maker Sean Wilson.

National companies B&Q and Screwfix will also be attending.

The event is one of a number taking place in Whitehaven this year, organised by Whitehaven Festival Company and sponsored by Nuclear Management Partners (NMP), including Whitehaven World War One Week (May 3 to 10), Whitehaven Live headlined by The Boomtown Rats (July 5), a Christmas fair and a tall ships visit.

Event organisers say due to an online error, tickets for the Whitehaven Live concert – also featuring The Stranglers and Big Country – are now being sold at Richardson’s of Whitehaven shop on Lowther Street. They cost £39.50.
