Meetings

The Circle normally holds two meetings each year. The Spring gathering is held in London, with the Autumn Meeting, which includes the AGM, normally alternating between the Provinces and London.

AGM & Autumn Meeting 2019

For the first time, a meeting was held outside the UK, at Corning, New York State home of the famous glass making company of the same name.
There were Workshops and Discussions as well as visits to the Rakow Library and of course, the Corning Museum of Glass
There was some time for relaxing - with a tour of the Finger Lakes Area and visits to four Wineries!

Spring Meeting 2019

After Lunch at a local restaurant we viewed labels in the following days Silver Auction, at Woolley & Wallis,
The Spring Meeting followed at the Auction House and consisted of a wide ranging discussion about the workings of the Auction House.
Many of the Members met for Dinner, again in a nearby Restaurant

Autumn Meeting & AGM 2018

We met in Alton, Hampshire, at a local hotel, on Saturday 20th October 2018, following an informal Dinner on Friday and a visit to the Allen Gallery in the town to view their collection of Wine Labels

While these are the two fixed events during the year, individual members also meet informally, often at antique fairs , museums or exhibitions. The Circle is a friendly social group as well as a group interested in the many and varied aspects of wine labels. We do encourage members to come to the Spring or Autumn meetings but some members prefer to keep to themselves and enjoy the Circle solely through the Journal.
