Ticket Sales are Now Closed for this Event.

The safety of our guests, staff, and volunteers is a top priority, therefore due to the continued concern of COVID-19 in our community the October 17, 2020 Tea at the Castle event is going VIRTUAL. 

If you would like to participate in our fun, entertaining and delicious October 17, 2020 Virtual Tea at the Castle event we still have tickets available!  If you live out of town and would still like to participate, we can mail a condensed kit (tea only) to your door! Just choose the $30.00 option listed under Materials. 

So how does a virtual tea work?
We provide everything that would be at our regular Tea event, all wrapped up in a beautiful package for you to safely enjoy at home with your guest(s). Each package will include two different varieties of tea, two types of finger sandwiches, madeleines and tea cookies, mini scones, clotted cream, and jam to enjoy. We will email you our private website link to log on to experience a variety of short, fun and informational hosts sharing history of Salisbury House and collections, tours, music, tidbits about the tea that you’re drinking and more. On the day of the Tea at the Castle event, between 10 am and 1 pm, you will drive up to the Salisbury House North Door and we’ll deliver your tea package(s) to your vehicle. At 1:00 pm you can log into your private website link to view the programming while you enjoy your delicious afternoon tea with your guest(s) in the safety of your home.
