We’re delighted to announce the fantastic celebrity line up for this year’s Call My Wine Bluff gala fundraising event for ActionAid, which takes place on 18 April.
Call My Wine Bluff is based on the classic TV show Call My Bluff, except at this event, the panellists will be trying to dupe the dining guests and each other into believing a (often very funny) story behind the wine they are all tasting. The audience then have the difficult task of trying to guess which panellist is telling the truth.
The iconic radio and TV presenter Nicholas Parsons will be hosting the evening, leading guests through each round of the game and helping ActionAid to raise heaps of cash for some of the poorest people around the world.
Nicholas is joined by our panel of budding wine buffs (and bluffers!), comedian and actor Hugh Dennis; comedian, actor and writer Arabella Weir; and stand-up comedian Ed Byrne, so it’s sure to be an entertaining evening for all!
This year's Call My Wine Bluff is also part of the Ready for Anything campaign so all donations made at this event will be matched pound for pound by the UK government, which means they will be able to help twice as many people around the world.
Hugh, who is joining the panel for a second time, said: "ActionAid's Call My Wine Bluff is an amazing way to raise money for the charity at the same time as celebrating a love of fine wine. Even better, every penny raised on the night will be matched by the UK government meaning double the amount of money to help the charity's vital work."
Call My Wine Bluff has raised more than £625,000 to date for ActionAid’s lifesaving work. There are still a few tickets left for this year’s event, so if you fancy your chances of beating our celebrity panel, while also helping to raise money for ActionAid, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02031 220 658.
