Salisbury House Holiday Tea at the Castle

Enjoy a world away from the ordinary: a proper English afternoon tea with finger sandwiches, fresh scones, real clotted cream, and irresistible treats. This special holiday event will be set among beautiful holiday decor that will enhance the home's 16th century English grandeur, including hand-carved oak paneling, stained glass, and fine furnishings.

The holiday tea will feature a spirited reading of Truman Capote's short story A Christmas Memory performed by Brad Dell, Artistic Director at Iowa Stage Theatre Company. You will also enjoy live holiday music on the Salisbury House one-of-a-kind Steinway piano. Self-guided tours of Salisbury House will be available after the Tea.


THANK YOU TO GONG FU TEA FOR PROVIDING THE TEA!
