After a successful first year, Gyllyndune Gardens will be hosting their second Tea Festival on Sunday 2nd September 2012. Full of tea themed activities, the festival gives visitors the opportunity to sample an array of teas, along with tea talks and exhibitions at the Falmouth venue.
With tea workshops and the opportunity to buy specialist teas from traders, this family festival has a host of entertainment lined up including an evening of tea cocktails and cabaret.
The Winter Garden at the Princess Pavilion and Gyllyngdune Gardens has been a venue for thousands of tea dances over the past 100 years and the festival continues this legacy. The gardens were once owned by a Victorian tea trader named Frederick Horniman and in the past Falmouth has played a key role in the tea trade.
Entry includes free tea tasting for adults and free face painting for children. The daytime activities take place between 11am and 5pm, tickets priced £3 for adults and £2 for children. The evening activities take place between 7pm and 11pm, tickets priced £8 for adults.
