Seven leading wine trade figures are to strip for charity at a wine industry event this summer. Christelle Guibert, tastings manager at consumer wine magazine Decanter, has persuaded The Observer's wine columnist Tim Atkin MW, Wines of Chile marketing director Michael Cox, Peter Darbyshire of Thierry's, Murray J Harris of The Bridge in Barnes, Richard Milsom of Charles Taylor Wines, Michael Palij MW of Winetraders and Stone, Vine & Sun's Andrew Shaw to perform a Chippendale-style Full Monty' striptease at a charity bash she is organising in conjunction with Women of Wine (WOW).

The performance will take place on 30 June at The Crypt in Holborn Circus, London, with catering by Bleeding Heart Restaurants. All money raised will go to The Prostate Cancer Charity.

Five of the strippers will also join five members of WOW to run the Mdoc Marathon on 10 September, sponsored by Chteau Lynch-Bages, in aid of The Prostate Cancer Charity. The London charity event will be compred by a fully clothed Steven Spurrier, Decanter's consultant editor. Admittance to the Full Monty' event will be restricted to wine industry women, but men can buy tickets for the party, which kicks off at 9pm, following the performance. Ticket prices and further information on how to sign up for the event will be released shortly.
