Tea With The Trust

Well, The Annual Dinner and Divali Party were both huge successes but now we come to our final event of the year!  Tea with the Trust is a traditional high tea with a Christmassy twist! 

We will be serving delicious sandwiches, tea and cakes and you’ll get the chance to taste Carl’s famous Christmas cake made from a 1920’s recipe….

The Winter Gardens Trust have partnered up with Crown Entertainment Centres to provide a huge real Christmas tree in the Floral Hall this year too, so come and listen to Carols around the tree on the evening and see the Mayor switch on the lights!

We’ve partnered up with Give a Little Help a Lot this year and we will have a collection point for you to drop off gifts and treats for those families who are struggling to make ands meet at Christmas.  They are looking for:

·        Toys & Games
·        Books & Puzzles
·        Gift sets of toiletries
·        Clothing
·        Festive Food - Selection Boxes, Tins of Biscuits, Christmas Cakes and Puddings etc.

Remember, all items should be new with tags and it would be useful if the donations are not wrapped (so we can see who would be best to give it to)!

It’s going to be a great evening and tickets are just £10.50 (available from the Winter Gardens Box Office) so get your woollies on and join us for an evening of festive fun on the 6th December from 5.30pm!
