Tickets are starting to sell briskly for Unlocking Warwick’s Armistice Afternoon Tea in the ballroom on Sunday October 7th. So don’t leave it too late if you want to come for a local commemoration of the WWI Armistice 100 years ago.
There will be presentations about the way Warwick was affected by the Great War, human stories unearthed by our War Memorial project researching the names on the memorial in Church Street, and poems and songs from the period with Soprano Imogen Parker and Oliver Hancock, Director of Music at St. Mary’s. The tea marking the end of the fighting will be similar to the produce available for the celebration teas in 1918.
The Armistice Tea takes place on the last day of the Warwick Words History Festival from 2pm to 4pm in the Regency ballroom of the Jury Street Court House.
Tickets cost £16 to include the refreshments and are available from the box office in the Warwick Visitor Information Centre. Or you can buy them online from the Leamington box office at www.warwickwords.co.uk. 01926 334418
