Afternoon Tea in the Garden

The Exeter Friends of Hospiscare are excited to bring your Afternoon Tea in the Garden, with jazz music from jazz trio soWhat. - TICKETS NOW SOLD OUT

Come join us for afternoon tea with music from jazz trio soWhat? in Orchard House’s secluded gardens, in the centre of Exeter. 

Event sold out – thank you to all those who purchased tickets! 

We will be serving a delicious afternoon tea consisting of sandwiches, a Devon Cream Tea and a selection of cakes and traybakes, all presented on vintage crockery, 3-tier cake stands, colourful napkins and white tablecloths on tables spaced safely in Orchard House’s large gardens.

All the food will be prepared by our team of lovely volunteers, who have had years of experience of creating yummy homemade cakes and delicious sandwiches.

We can accommodate most dietary requirements if highlighted when booking. However, if someone has a serious allergy, we regret we are unable to meet these dietary requirements, as food is prepared in a non-industrial kitchen which will not be allergy free i.e. nuts and wheat will be used in our kitchens, so we cannot guarantee against cross contamination.
