To celebrate Afternoon Tea Week, I'm presenting a Georgian themed tea party at a historic 18th century home in Spitalfields, Dennis Severs' house, at 18 Folgate Street. I will be baking historic recipes. Dennis Severs was an American who bought a house in Spitalfields, at the time a very unfashionable area. Rather than gentrifying the house, he returned it to and carefully preserved its original decor, for instance there is no electricity. As a house it's an art installation, recreating the life of a silk-weaving Hugenot family through its various rooms.
Copies of my book MsMarmitelover's Secret Tea Party will be on sale for £20 and the Dennis Severs house book £15
Tickets including drink £75
