Wednesday 3rd 3.45pm Sparkling Afternoon Tea & Tales
The Old Swan & Minster Mill Hotel
Minster Lovell, Witney OX29 0RN
Cake and fantasy for grown-ups in a new occasional series of afternoon tea performances in beautiful Cotswold countryside. (Next events 19 July, 25 October.)
– Just 20 minutes from Oxford, what could be more civilised than a sumptuous afternoon tea, a glass of fizz and live spoken word performance inspired by the Cotswolds’ and Britain’s most magical folklore.
Chloë’s repertoire runs from King Arthur to the nearby Rollright Stones; and if you’re in the mood she might drop in a UFO!
