Celebrate Great British Food at Weston Park with Afternoon Tea

Visitors to the Great British Food Festival at Weston Park are invited to add to their food experiences of the festival by enjoying a special Great British Afternoon Tea in the 17th century House on Sunday 28th and Monday 29th May.

The three-day celebration of food takes place across the Bank Holiday Weekend (Saturday 27 – Monday 29 May) and is packed full of chef demonstrations, food challenges, artisan food and plenty of family entertainment.

Andrea Webster, Marketing Manager, from Weston Park says, “We are absolutely delighted that the Great British Food Festival is going to be making its home at Weston Park.  Fabulous food and produce is one of the estate’s long held passions, with a whole host of food-focused occasions making up our events programme.  Our team of chefs wanted to get  the whole of the estate involved, by hosting an event at the house to give guests the chance add a special element to their festival experience.”

The afternoon tea will be served in the classical country setting of the Victorian Orangery with views over the formal gardens and landscapes of Staffordshire and Shropshire beyond.  Its theme and flavours will reflect Great British traditions, from delicate finger sandwiches to melt in the mouth pastries, all created and crafted by Weston’s brigade of chefs.

The Great British Afternoon Tea is priced at £27.50 per person, or £33.50 with a glass of Prosecco, and includes entry to the Great British Food Festival and the House, Park and Gardens.  Places can be booked by calling Emily on 01952 852106 or by emailing emily@weston-park.com

The Festival itself is a three day extravaganza with tickets priced on the gate at: adults £8; seniors £7; 5-16 years £5; under 5s  free; family (2+2) £25.
