Event Details


Sense and Sensibili-TEA

Escape the winter-time blues to a world away from the ordinary with a proper English afternoon tea accompanied with finger sandwiches, fresh scones, real clotted cream, and irresistible treats. All set among the ambiance of 16th century English grandeur, including hand-carved oak paneling, stained glass, and fine furnishings. 

We are excited to present our featured speaker, Kerry Skram, a local playwright and Jane Austen enthusiast. Kerry will be speaking about Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility, and the process of adapting the book into a theatrical production.

You will also enjoy live music on the Salisbury House one-of-a-kind Steinway piano. Self-guided tours of Salisbury House will be available after the Tea.

Doors open at Noon. Tea Begins at 1:00 pm.

Space is limited!
