Eleanor Conway: Walk of Shame

The Whiskey Affair

The event will include live entertainment; whiskey experts on hand to chat to; samples from showcasing brands; food available to buy and lots of like-minded people to mingle with. There will also be a free photo-booth and free master-class on whiskey. For those 18+ only. guildford.gov.uk

Old Herbaceous
