Keep Calm and Drink Tea: A Wartime Christmas Afternoon Tea
Ministry of Food Announcement
Prime Minister Winston Churchill has officially announced the end of war. With Christmas around the corner, extra treats have been made available to you. Join your community to rejoice and celebrate with a 1940s Christmas Street Party afternoon tea event.
Take a trip back to the 1940s and experience Christmas on the Homefront with this interactive themed event. On offer we have:
- Wartime Christmas Afternoon Tea Menu, including a variety of succulent sandwiches, delicate cakes and savoury pastries.
- 1940s makeup luxuries
- Photo opportunity with props included
- Make-Do Wartime Christmas Decorations
On arrival, present your ration card and get given your own personal ration box for the week. With few 1940s families being able to get hold of a Christmas tree, build your own TrEA with what has been afforded to you. Educate the kids about Christmas on the Homefront with trivia, and create your own Wartime Christmas decorations. Ladies, take advantage of a rarity and pamper yourself with rare makeup and then strike a pose with the whole family.
Notice for guests: Afternoon tea is a set menu (including vegetarian options). Please inform us of any specific dietary requirements at the booking stage.
