The (Art) History of Afternoon Tea

Beyond the Palette presents The (Art) History of Afternoon Tea

Have you ever wondered about the origins of the quintessentially British tradition of afternoon tea?

Join Lynne from Beyond the Palette for an irreverent journey through the difference between high tea and low tea and why the Renaissance artist Carlo Crivelli loved cucumbers so much. Is the humble strawberry, a perennial favourite on any afternoon tea menu, holy or naughty when depicted in artworks?

But most importantly, is it jam first or cream first?

All tickets include a scone with cream and jam!
