More than half the tickets have been sold already for Unlocking Warwick’s Armistice Afternoon Tea on Sunday October 7th. So if you would like to come, don’t leave it too late to get your tickets.
On the final day of the Warwick Words History Festival the tea will mark the centenary of the First World War Armistice with presentations about the impact of the war on Warwick, with some human stories uncovered by our researchers, some poems and songs.
Mezzo-soprano Imogen Parker will be accompanied by Oliver Hancock, Director of Music at the Collegiate Church of St. Mary’s, and we hope guests will join in with some of the songs. The tea will provide the kind of food available in the midlands in the autumn of 1918 when the country celebrated the end of the fighting that had claimed so many lives.
Tickets at £16 available from the box office at the Warwick Visitor Information Centre in the Court House, or by calling 01926 334418.
