Join the Novel Tea for our Children’s Tea, featuring a Brambly Hedge-themed children’s tea and storytime. Adults will learn interactive reading techniques for children from a literacy expert.

Tea and lemonade as well as kid-approved tea foods (that parents and grandparents will also like) will be served.

“Brambly Hedge is on the other side of the stream, across the field. If you can find it, and if you look very hard amongst the tangled roots and stems, you may even see a wisp of smoke from a small chimney, or through an open door, a steep flight of stairs deep within the trunk of a tree. For this is the home of the mice of Brambly Hedge.”

*Fabulous tea hats highly recommended, but not required

DIETARY RESTRICTIONS AND MENU SUBSTITUTIONS

Our tea menus are fixed and always include two vegetarian sandwiches.  Unfortunately, we are unable to substitute items or offer gluten, dairy or egg-free options. Our food is prepared in a facility that uses wheat, nut, dairy, and eggs. If you have allergies, please note that on your registration, and we will annotate that event’s menu to indicate any items contain that ingredient.

However, our goal is to ensure every guest feels welcome and appreciated, so we will always provide to-go boxes if you would like to take something you can’t eat home for someone else.
