Queen Victoria’s High Tea

March 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Anticipate the celebration of Queen Victoria’s 200th birthday with High Tea in a private room at the Oscar Wilde Bar, a renowned establishment that has been dubbed “the most elaborately decorated pub in New York City.”  Our High Tea begins with a glass of sherry or port. This will be followed by three courses: 1) scones with clotted cream, 2) a selection of four tea sandwiches, 3) four choices of petit-fours, tartlets, cookies. And pots of tea (four selections). A brief lecture on the British origins of high tea will be given by John Metcalfe, a native of London and a former VSNY Board member.



Space is limited so only 30 participants can be accommodated.
FEES: $55 for Victorian Society New York Members, $65 for others

Paid reservations must be received by Friday, March 15
Meeting place will be provided with reservation confirmation.

No refunds will be made for cancellations.
