Last year we held a summer Mad hatters Tea Party within the walled garden, a new event for Beyond the Wall, with it being such a success despite rain on the day itself, we held our 2019 Mad Hatters Tea Party at the start of August.
This year we were blessed with warm weather, and with many of the tickets being reserved and purchased before the event, it looked to be a fully subscribed event.
With live music starting off the day, families were welcomed into the garden with drinks and activities on the lawn, all followed by the tea party itself. The garden was decorated to suit our theme with inventive and interactive decorations and activities. Our tea party was also highly decorated, with cakes and treats looking splendid, thanks to a talented supporter of our work.
A treasure hunt and garden tour followed the tea party, and shortly after the band resumed, while Pimms was enjoyed on the lawn by many of our guests. A raffle rounded off a sunny and enjoyable afternoon and we are delighted to announce that the event raised just over £700 that will go to supporting the variety of learning and therapeutic activities that we deliver within the day service that lives within the walls of Thornham Walled Garden.
The team would lie to thank everybody who contributed to making a magical day, and we are already looking forward to working together again as we start to plan our next event, as well a next summers Mad Hatters Tea Party.
