The Gin Tasting Group are enthusiasts, sharing gin knowledge through our gin tasting experience in Birmingham, Warwickshire and the West Midlands.
Our Gin Masterclass is great value for money at £25.00 per head, which includes a perfectly made G&T, a talk through the history of gin and a tutored tasting of 6 gins from small independent producers.
We love our gin, and we love to share all that we know about the production, history and service of this wonderful spirit.
We begin the evening with a perfectly made G&T then there is a tutored tasting of a range of gins from small artisan producers. The line up of gins changes with each event, so if you book on again, you get to try a whole new lineup.

Wake Up & Deirdrealize
A ridiculous, outlandish, improvised, character romp, guaranteed to take you on the most thrilling rollercoaster ride of your life
Deirdre Me is on a mission to show the world how awesome it is, one person at a time, starting with you. Hailing all the way from Texas-Tennessee, Deirdre is more magnanimous than Gandhi, sexier than chocolate, hotter than the sun. With an artillery of brash offensive charm, outlandish opinions and ridiculous ideas she is locked, loaded and ready to open fire in pursuit of your awesomeness. If you think you don’t want that, trust Deirdre when she tells you ‘you sure as hell need it’. The louder you scream, the faster we go!
This is the story of one woman’s desperate search for meaning, in a world where dreams are sold as reality, the notion of ‘fake it to make it’ is pushed to the extreme until even Deirdre can’t keep up the pretence anymore.
A hilarious examination of the constructs of fame, self-help and image and a ludicrous expose of the isolation and loneliness that threaten to engulf us all in our endless quest for perfection. The show is an audacious combination of story-telling and game show, with a dark twist. Everyone is about to ‘Wake Up & Deirdrealize’, not least of all Deirdre herself.
Nincompoops’ first ever full length theatre show is bought to you by the company’s creator, first class Gaulier trained idiot Lucy Harrington.

Up 'n' Under
Up n Under follows the story of an inept pub team from the Wheatsheaf Arms in a rugby league sevens competition. Ex-pro Arthur's only passions in life are his wife and rugby league. When he hears about the 'Cobblers Arms' pub team and their corrupt manager, Arthur bets his life savings with Reg Welch that he can train any team to beat them.
However, the 'Wheatsheaf Arms' can only muster a side of four whose pride lies in their unbroken record of defeat. The pitifully unfit set of men have to accept the help of a coach, who just happens to be a woman.
They have to struggle through adversity, come up triumphant and become a team.

One Man, Two Guvnors
In 1963 Brighton, out-of-work skiffle player Francis Henshall becomes separately employed by two men – Roscoe Crabbe, a gangster, and Stanley Stubbers, an upper class twit. Francis tries to keep the two from meeting, in order to avoid each of them learning that Francis is also working for someone else. Complicating events, Roscoe is really Rachel Crabbe in disguise, her twin brother Roscoe having been killed by her boyfriend, who is none other than Stanley.
Complicating events still further is local mobster Charlie the Duck, who has arranged his daughter Pauline's engagement to Roscoe despite her preference for over-the-top amateur actor Alan Dangle. Even further complications are prompted by several letters, a very heavy trunk, several unlucky audience volunteers, an extremely elderly waiter and Francis' pursuit of his twin passions: Dolly, Charlie's feminist bookkeeper, and food.
