As before, the bottles will be a variety of single cask exclusive malts (none of which can be purchased on the high street) and most if not all will have never been sampled before! Cheese, crackers and fruit, along with Latkes to celebrate Chanukah will be served, and there will be an auction and a raffle. Plus you will get to take home your very own crystal tasting glass and maybe a bottle too! If anyone wishes to sponsor a table/bottle/the event that would be much appreciated please: - £100 to sponsor a table (not including any tickets) - £150 bottle sponsor (up to 5 of these) - £500 main event sponsor Further details will be emailed soon – but please save the date in the meantime! We would like to have an idea of numbers as soon as possible, so please let us know if you are able to come. Places are on a first come first served basis. Anyone who puts their name down but does not come will still be asked to pay because once the whisky has been ordered it is too late to fill your place.

    description: Relaunching the Israeli Film Club with an amazing cinematic phenomena: Fill The Void - Eighteen-year-old Shira is the youngest daughter of the family and is about to be married off to a very promising young man of the same age. On Purim, her twenty-eight-year-old sister, Esther, dies during childbirth, leaving her husband to care for the child and postponing Shira's promised match. When the girls' mother finds out that Yochay may leave the country with her only grandchild, she proposes a match between Shira and the widower, which leaves Shira to choose between her heart's wish and her family's wish to keep the child with them. FILL THE VOID was the 2012 Venice Film Festival winner for Best Actress, and has been selected as the Israeli entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar at the 85th Academy Awards. It was also featured in the Spotlight Program at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
