The Salon du Thé

The household

A period afternoon tea experience in the company of a gracious host, her flamboyant associates and her domestic staff. Audiences are immersed in a bygone era with friends, strangers and characters for a pleasurable performance and a sumptuous feast.

Developed with Arts Council England and Lili Vanilla, master baker, The Salon explores the culture surrounding traditional Afternoon Tea.

The events are designed for audiences of 50 people and upwards, for roll out in Stately Homes and Historic Houses, Theatrical Venues and Festivals or Private Events.
We encourage dressing up for those that enjoy wearing a really good hat or even full Edwardian dress, but we welcome you however you are most comfortable.

The Salon was created by Jo Dagless and Kate Hargreaves and has been seen at Corn Exchange Newbury, Ham House for the Richmond Literary Festival and as The Salon du Thé Express aboard the Isle Of Wight steam railway, for Lost at Sea Festival.

Its available for bookings in pretty much anywhere you may like to sit down to a very special Afternoon Tea.
