Members' Afternoon Tea

Members' Afternoon Tea

22nd September 2018


We are no longer taking registrations for the Members' Afternoon Tea.

We are looking forward to welcoming King's Members and guests to the Members' Afternoon Tea on Saturday, 22nd September 2018 from 3.00-5.00pm. This is a family friendly event and children are very welcome.

The Afternoon Tea will be served as a buffet and will include a combination of finger sandwiches, cakes and scones, with hot and cold beverages. A live band will also be performing in the Provost's Lodge Garden during the event.

Due to scheduled building work in Bodley's Court over the summer, this event will instead take place in the Provost's Garden and Webb's Court. If the weather is wet or unusually cold the event will be moved to the Hall.

Following the Tea guests may wish to attend Evensong, the first service of the new term, starting at 5.30pm. Please note that Members will be admitted via the north door of the Chapel at approximately 5.10pm (Clare College side), ahead of the public queue.
