Pop Up Tea Parties and Tea Dances

I’m very excited to be working with Vintage Vogue (couture) and The Lamb Coffee Shop, part of the Lamb Arcade in Wallingford, Oxfordshire, to be able to put on our vintage hen parties in a really quirky, treasure trove of an antique emporium! This will enable us to put on a special pop up tea dance, 1920s or 1940s style, for hen parties and other groups having special days out, including . The Lamb Coffee Shop host to tea dances past – you can almost hear the music and sense the couples rotating around the dancefloor in times past, in this fantastic old building!

If you love all that’s antique and vintage you’ll love the Lamb Arcade, fantastic for one off antique pieces of jewellry, trinkets, vintage china and furnitues… and CLOTHING!
